Preview | Back to Adams Park for U23s on Friday

Youngsters hosting West Brom

20 September 2018

Reading’s Under-23s will be aiming to keep pushing up the Premier League 2 Division 2 table on Friday evening as they face their West Bromwich Albion visitors at Adams Park (kick-off 7pm).

Scott Marshall’s charges – with the inclusion of Andy Rinomhota, Pelle Clement and Garath McCleary – overturned a two-goal deficit to win a friendly fixture with Brentford B in midweek.

Coupled with a draw last Friday against Manchester United in the league, as well as wins against North East pair Sunderland and Newcastle, there’s plenty of confidence to be taken into this fixture!

On the other hand, the Baggies currently sit rock-bottom of the table after five games – just one draw amassed in that time, as well as four losses, and a -9 goal-difference.

With first-teamers still feeling their way into action as they return from injury, there could potentially be some more minutes for some over-age players under the floodlights in Wycombe.

It’s the first of back-to-back home league fixtures for our U23s.  The second follows on Saturday 29th September as we host Southampton at Madejski Stadium.

Entry is £3 Adults and £1 Concessions and should be paid on arrival at Adams Park.  If you’re free and fancy checking out some floodlit football, head down and get behind our youngsters!
