There can only be one winner. 

It’s been a long, demanding campaign with ups and downs, cheers and tears. 

And time and time again, our boys have risen to the challenge.  They’ve represented our town gallantly; they have earned their right to contest the play-off final, where the prize is place in the Premier League. 

It’ll be our toughest challenge yet when we meet Huddersfield on Monday.  Players and fans alike… one last push.

Neil Swarbrick is the official on duty for this all-important game – the first time he has taken a fixture involving either Reading or Huddersfield this season.  Assisting him will be Jake Collin and Darren Cann, with Stuart Attwell manning the fourth official’s board. 


Underdogs, again.  For the umpteenth time this season, we’re the bookies’ outside bet… Reading are 23/10 to win in 90 minutes with EFL title sponsor Sky Bet, the Terriers are 5/4, and odds are 11/5 for the winner to be decided with either extra time or penalties. 

Yann Kermorgant is our leading scorer this season… and he is priced 6/1 to notch his 20th of the campaign in a Royals win in 90 minutes.  And John Swift was the first goalscorer for the Royals this season… he’s 8/1 to bookend the campaign by being the last goalscorer in the game.
