The Royals go into Tuesday night's match at Millwall hoping for a third consecutive game unbeaten on the road, with a victory at Birmingham City and a point at Brentford in their last two ventures out of RG2.


“If we deliver quality and work together, we can get the result”

25 September 2017

Following a late equaliser from Jon Dadi Bodvarsson at Madejski Stadium against Hull City on Saturday, the striker hopes to continue to add to his tally throughout this season, following a lively performance off the bench at the weekend.

After a sold-out away following at Griffin Park last time we were on the road, the Royals will need all of your support once again as we head into London on Tuesday.

The Lions sit one point and two places above the Royals in the Championship table as things stand, and Jaap Stam's side will hope for a repeat of the 3-1 victory against Millwall in the Carabao Cup last month.

Neil Harris' men will surely be a different proposition in front of their own fans, though, with another tight affair expected between the two teams. Don't miss it!
