After the Madejski Stadium floodlights were plugged in for the first time this season last Tuesday for our win over Gillingham, more midweek football follows when we host Aston Villa on Tuesday.
As usual, supporters of the Midlands club are travelling in their hordes to Madejski Stadium to try and get behind their team from the South Stand. So we need the right kind of backing from the other three sides of the ground to give us the best chance of victory!
Last season, in one of the best home campaigns we have enjoyed throughout our history, Villa were one of just two teams that came away from Madejski Stadium with all three points when Jordan Ayew netted a spot-kick in injury time.
Now the opportunity is there to exact our revenge, and to kick-start our season!
Fulham denied us three points with a sucker-punch goal on Saturday – but the season could start in earnest with victory over Villa when they visit for the 8pm kick-off on Tuesday.
Steve Bruce’s expensively-assembled squad haven’t enjoyed the start to the season which they would have wanted; they were pegged back by Hull to settle for a draw on the opening day, and then lost 3-0 on their travels to Cardiff on Saturday.
Adult tickets begin at just £20 and supporters aged 18-24 can attend for as little as £10… make it a great night under the floodlights by digging in for the boys in blue and white! Click the banner below for full ticket information, including prices and how to buy.
