🎥 Coventry (a) and Stoke (h) selected for live broadcast on Sky Sports

Our trip to St Andrew's is moved to Friday night, while the Potters come to RG2 for an early afternoon kick-off...

19 October 2020

The Royals remain unbeaten so far this season and the whole country will get a couple of great opportunities to see what Veljko Paunović's side are all about as two of our fixtures before the next international break have been selected for live broadcast by Sky Sports.

The first means a change of date for Reading fans' diaries - our trip to newly-promoted Coventry City will now take place on Friday 30th October, kicking off at 7.45pm.

The fixture against the Sky Blues was orginially scheduled for 3pm on Saturday 31st October but we will now have a Friday night meeting with Mark Robins' side at St Andrew's.

Then little more than a week later, Stoke City will visit Madejski Stadium on Saturday 7th November for an early afternoon start in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Kick-off against Michael O'Neill's Potters will be at 12.30pm as the focus of the weekend's football falls firmly on Reading and Stoke City first.


We last travelled to Coventry City in September 2011, taking on City at the Ricoh Arena more than nine years ago.

That day it ended in a 1-1 draw, Simon Church equalising after a second minute opener from Gary McSheffrey. But there were penalties missed at both ends too - Noel Hunt seeing his spotkick saved by Joe Murphy before Lukas Jutkiewicz skied over from the penalty spot in injury time!

Stoke City's last visit to RG2 meanwhile came much more recently.

The Potters were at the Madejski to welcome the resumption of football after three months in lockdown and stole a point with an injury time header from Nick Powell - when Lucas Joao's first half finish seemed to have secured victory for the Royals back in June.
