Excitement builds for Hornets clash
Over 20,000 fans are once again expected at Madejski Stadium this weekend, as excitement around the Royals Sky Bet Championship season continues.
Reading’s record Football League season ticket sales contributed to a fantastic opening day attendance for the 2-1 victory over Ipswich a fortnight ago, and fans have again showed terrific interest for the visit of Watford on Saturday afternoon.
The clash has been tipped by many as one of the Championship’s clashes of the day – with both sides off to a great start in their respective league campaigns, and known for their attacking footballing philosophies.
Media interest has also been higher than usual for the fixture – with plenty of national press set to be in attendance.
History also suggests it could be a tight encounter; out of the 96 previous league games between the two clubs – Reading have come out on top on 38 occasions, with the Hornets winning 37 times!
