Reading have lost 4 and won 1 this year, with their last game being a 4-0 loss to Huddersfield Town. They have scored 7 goals (John Swift is their top scorer...3 goals), which is more than anyone else outside the top 11, but they have conceded 13, which is at least 5 more than any other team in the division so far. This leaves them in 21st place, just 1 point above the relegation zone, but also 1 good win away from 13th, so it is early days. As for us, my hope is that the international break will have been a chance to give the players a good break, and give those recovering from injury a chance to get better and back to full fitness. Sam Field is the only long-term absentee, having had knee surgery. Otherwise, the aim is surely to start where we left off having started the season with 3 wins and 2 draws, a start that sees us sit 3rd in the table. Andre Gray has joined since our last game. He played under Warburton at Brentford, and so I'm assuming that means Warburton thinks highly of him, and that he should fit in well as a second half replacement for Austin alongside Dykes, or even to start. His goal scoring record isn't too prolific, having scored 19 in 113 games for Watford since 2017, but here's hoping he starts well and contributes a lot to the team. I'll add team news and manager comments when they go on the official...enjoy those who'll be there (there is a separate thread about the ticket fiasco so I won't go into it here...) and as always... ...COME ON YOU SUPER HOOPSA!!!
