Ahead of the game | Pre-season push against Posh

A look ahead to Wednesday’s penultimate friendly

23 July 2019

The season is almost upon us – there are just a couple of games yet to go as pre-season prep is put into action. Chelsea visit this Sunday, but first Peterborough visit Madejski Stadium on Wednesday.

Reading vs Peterborough United

Madejski Stadium
Pre-season friendly

Darren Ferguson’s side missed out on a League One play-off place last season by just a single point; now they continue their preparations to have a crack at promotion to the second tier again in 2019/20.

Results have been solid in the Posh’s practice matches. Wins against St Mirren, Stamford, Kettering and Barnet and a draw with Stevenage, and no defeats as yet.


For José Gomes’ side, it is a return to matches on home soil after two weeks and six fixtures in Spain. With Michael Morrison and Charlie Adam joining the ranks recently, as well as goalkeeper João Virgínia during the team’s time away, it could hand Madejski Stadium debuts to new recruits.

It will be the final time that the Royals wear their temporary pre-season kits, ahead of Thursday’s kit launch for our 2019-20 strips.


Supporters can attend this fixture for free – all fans will be located in unreserved seating in the East Stand. No tickets are required to enter.

Parking is also freely available on site on a first come, first served basis.
