After starting December in winning fashion, Reading U23s look to further their points tally by hosting in-form Manchester United U23s at the Mad Stad.
After downing the Magpies 1-0 in the last league game, our U23 Royals will see out 2019 with a home game against the high-flying Red Devils. It was Michael Olise's second-half strike that split the sides in the end and the Reading youngsters left with all three points.
But attention turns to tonight, where Manchester United will look to close the gap between them and table toppers West Ham United, who currently sit a point clear in the Premier League 2 Division 2 table. But the Royals will act as the hurdle to overcome, with six points taken from their last three games.
Scott Marshall's side will close the curtains on the festivities with a new year away trip to West Bromwich Albion on the 6th January 2020.
So get yourself down to the Mad Stad tonight to watch the players of the future grace the turf in what will be a highly entertaining fixture under the lights.
