The Select Car Leasing Stadium FFS! Madejski Stadium sounds much better IMO and for what John Madejski did for Reading FC, he deserved it.

I see us losing this match but mostly because I expect RM to use the game to get a look at the players who were not involved on Saturday.
Hopefully I am wrong but either way I expect to see more of the brave/suicidal possession that we showed on Saturday :D

I think Martin will do some experimenting.
Said Piroe will have a chance

I expect a few small rotations but he'll want most players to have more match experience of that tactics hes practising, I expect the back 5 and probably Benda to start (maybe Cooper for Lati) and he said Piroe would be in the squad, i suspect he''ll start

Good call. I can’t see him going for wholesale changes as he’ll want to have another look at the players and give them the opportunity to try and build on last Saturday and implement his tactic#. If he makes too many changes there’s a danger they’ll be all at sea and at risk of a thumping which wont do much for morale and confidence.

Does anyone know if tickets will be available at Reading tomorrow? I tried the ticket office and was 25 in the queue this morning. Tried again after lunch and was 39th. The website now says tickets off sale.
