Date set for U23s' Villa Park showdown

Scott Marshall's men to head to Aston Villa in the play-off semi-final on Tuesday 1st May!

24 April 2018

Reading's Under-23s secured a play-off place with a 3-1 win over Stoke City at Madejski Stadium last night and they will now meet Aston Villa in the play-off semi-final - a place in the PL2 top tier at stake!

Villa finished the PL2 season in second and they will now host the Royals at Villa Park on Tuesday 1st May, kick-off 7pm.

Striker Sam Smith's hat-trick was enough to see off the Potters on Monday night and secure a trip to Kevin MacDonald's Villa. We won 3-2 when we hosted our semi-final opponents here earlier in the season, but lost 3-1 in the reverse fixture. So it's all to play for in the play-offs.
