Our youngsters have been in impressive form this season and currently sit third in the Barclays U21 Premier League.
Last time out Martin Kuhl’s boys were involved in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The young Royals came back from 3-1 down at in West London, with Liam Kelly scoring a spectacular free-kick deep into stoppage time to level the scores, stun Chelsea, and earn a vital point.
The Under-21s have played once already at Madejski Stadium so far this season – that was at the end of August when they faced a highly-rated Liverpool side. Reading were not intimidated by their opposition and fired their way into a two-goal through Andrija Novakovich and Rowan Liburd; a late goal from the visitors could not put the dampeners on what was a superb home performance as the Royals saw out the 2-1 win.
On Monday evening we are also hosting our Halloween-themed signing session, with plenty of activities taking place around the Stadium for young fans before kick-off.
