Gallery | A win and a draw in two home turf friendlies

Debuts for Adam and Morrison in stalemate with Birmingham before Barrow, Blackett, Barrett and Swift bag against Boro

24 July 2019

The Royals were twice in pre-season action on home turf, albeit in sweltering more akin to the Spanish setting they have just returned from.

Charlie Adam and Michael Morrison made their first appearances in blue and white hoops at Hogwood Park as the Royals earned a 1-1 draw with Birmingham City behind closed doors - Andrija Novakovich scoring a late equaliser.

Then, as Madejski Stadium opened its doors for the first time in 2019-20 - free of charge to all - José Gomes' men earned a 4-2 win over Peterborough thanks to goals from Tyler Blackett, Mo Barrow and stunning strikes from John Swift and Josh Barrett.

Here are some of the best images from a day full of pre-season action. We now take on Chelsea in our final pre-season friendly of the summer on Sunday!
