You won’t have failed to notice the sub-zero temperatures and snowy weather that have disrupted travel all over the country. And, of course, this could affect Reading supporters heading to Molineux this weekend for our Sky Bet Championship outing with the league’s pace-setters.
With these kinds of changeable conditions, we can’t make much in the way of guarantees – but as things stand, the game is set to go ahead as planned for our 5.30pm kick-off without any need for a pitch inspection. We will of course update you should anything change.
It’s around 120 miles from Reading to Wolverhampton – that’s a lot of ground to cover. Please ensure you give yourself adequate time for your journey and check travel news before you set off, however you’re planning to get there.
There is one road closure planned – M40 junction 4 (Handy Cross Roundabout) in High Wycombe is due to be closed for works by Highways England, subject to weather conditions. Click here for the latest information about that closure.
Edit: We have been advised that the planned closure on the M40 junction 4 has been cancelled because of the weather, so these roads should be open as normal.
