Pick up your copy from Madejski Stadium for just £3

26 November 2019

As ever, your copy of The Royal will be your perfect pre-match companion as you settle in and get ready to watch Reading take on Leeds United on Tuesday night.

As always, you will get an extensive look at Tuesday's opponents Leeds, including a profile of each of their last starting line-up, the eclectic history of their club crest and plenty more.

Mark Bowen and Liam Moore offer their pre-match thoughts in their notes, and we take a delve into the archives for the Match of the Madejski Season in Reading's highest-ever league finish, when the Royals came 8th in the Premier League in the 2006-07 season.

Here's a snippet of what the skipper had to say ahead of the game:

We might not have played the silky football which we would have liked to play, we probably did force it a bit too much at the end, but the fighting spirit was there throughout.

I think we put in a performance which the away support could relate to – doing exactly what you like to see Reading players do: Showing fight and determination, pushing until the very end.

There are lessons to be learned from the game, and we have been working since Saturday to do that. Hopefully, we can brush up on a few things that will serve us well against Leeds.

Football historian, Leigh Edwards looks at ten players to have donned the white of Leeds United in two separate spells, we take a look at Leeds' 2-1 win over Luton at the weekend and much, much more.

With the cover going to print before a yellow card confirmed his suspension for this match, Andy Yiadom features on the front of Tuesday night's edition of your matchday programme.

Make sure you get your copy from any of our sellers based all around Madejski Stadium on the night for just £3.
