The Royals have been hard at work at Hogwood during the gap in league fixtures, with their trip to Wigan this weekend being the first of 10 matches in the next 42 days.

While plenty of work will have gone into setting the squad up physically and mentally for the most challenging run of games this season, our international Royals have also returned to camp to fill up the options available to Paul Clement this weekend.

Our hosts this weekend, Wigan Athletic, sit four points above the Royals in the Championship table as it stands - but will be looking to get points on the board having lost each of their last four matches.

Reading are currently on a run where they have picked up 10 points out of a possible 15 at home, and they will aim to translate those fortunes away from home with a strong performance and result on Saturday. 


Tickets are available to buy up until 12pm on Friday from our Ticket Office. Tickets will be available to buy on the day, however, from a cash-only turnstile - with no increase on advance pricing.
