Ahead of the game | Back to action against Boro

Royals rocking up to the Riverside this weekend

13 September 2019

After the international hiatus, it's back to action for the Royals as they prepare to take on tough opposition on Teesside...

Middlesbrough vs Reading
Saturday 14th September 2019, 3pm
Riverside Stadium
Sky Bet Championship

Reading's final away match of 2018-19 saw Inflatables Day make its way up to the Riverside back in April. Despite Danny Loader's wonderstrike, and eventual Goal of the Season winner, giving the Royals the lead on the day, Boro battled back to take all three points on home soil.

Now under the guidance of former Boro and England defender, Jonathan Woodgate, Middlesbrough have a new-look side to take into the new season.

Boro's campaign started slowly, but they recovered to take five points from their last three matches, now sitting two places behind the Royals in the early stages of the Sky Bet Championship campaign.

For the Royals, manager José Gomes confirmed that Matt Miazga is recovering from his injury that he sustained against Huddersfield Town back in August, but Josh Barrett is doubtful for Saturday's game after illness in the week.

After a defeat before the international break, the squad will be determined to rectify that immediately and restart their momentum as they head into another busy run of games in league and cup.
