📷 Gallery | Royals in battle with top flight Chelsea as preparation for restart intensifies

Mark Bowen's squad were at Chelsea's Cobham training ground this morning for a behind-closed-doors friendly ahead of a competitive action restart next week...

10 June 2020

Cast your minds back nearly a whole calendar year and you'll remember a pre-season friendly against Chelsea at Madejski Stadium.

The summer is here again...but the season is yet to finish. And this time Chelsea played host to us as both squads ramped up their fitness levels with a competitive pre-restart friendly at the Blues' training facility.

It took current Chelsea loanee Matt Miazga back to his parent club in a Royals shirt while ex-Blues midfielder John Swift also found himself on familiar ground.

The result ended in a 1-0 win for our Premier League hosts, courtesy of a first half goal from Pedro. However, the Royals will have received a valuable run-out with the visit of Stoke City and the Championship's return fast approaching.

Take a look at some of the photos from today's friendly encounter...
