Join in the debate!

As the media clamoured for reaction from the Reading camp following a historic win over Newcastle United, one journalist suggested to Brian McDermott that the result was club’s greatest away win in the Premier League.

It’s certainly a debate that has got Royals supporters talking – and you can join in the debate now via our social media channels!

The 2-1 victory was only the Royals’ eighth win on the road  in the top flight in 50 attempts, with the last coming back in May 2008 – a 4-0 win over Derby.

Head over to Facebook now to vote in our special poll – and let us know which victory you think stands out the most!

We’ll be running a special feature on our away successes in the Premier League in this Saturday’s matchday programme, using a selection of the best comments that we receive through social media!
