📺 Blackburn visit selected for Sky Sports slot

Visit from Rovers the latest Royals fixture to be televised

22 January 2021

Our Sky Bet Championship fixture at home to Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday 2nd March has been switched to an 8pm kick-off, after it was selected for live Sky Sports Coverage.

The date of our clash with Rovers remains the same, but the time at which proceedings will get underway at Madejski Stadium has moved by 15 minutes to revert back to its orginal time of 8pm.

The Royals will be hoping for a repeat performance of the last time the two sides met in late October, when goals from Yakou Méïté, Michael Olise, Josh Laurent and Lucas João saw Reading to a thumping 4-2 victory at Ewood Park.

Nonetheless, Rovers will provide a stern test, and won their last trip to the Madejski as John Swift’s second half-strike proved nothing more than a consolation, following goals from Bradley Dack and Adam Armstrong back in September 2019.

This broadcast selection means that the visit of Tony Mowbray’s side to RG2 will now not be available for supporters to watch via iFollow.
