Sounds like we have been dominating the opening exchanges.

It's not great from the 'keeper but it is good build-up play and a nice finish, near-post from Howe.

Unnecessary Free-kick given away and Charlton equalise.

Saw it this morning and it was a very cheeky goal, great flick.

I don't know too much about him, would someone more in the know be able to confirm how close/far away he is from first team football? - maybe not league action but cup competitions?

From what i have seen of him he is miles away from the 1st team- didn’t do a lot on Monday( missed a great chance). Saying that the goals he scored yesterday were well taken.

Seen bits of him, and didn't seem to offer too much tbh.

Still he is only young still, but guessing a few lower division loans are his next step

Royals and Racers Middlesborough 3 Royals 4 so the Royals reach the Quarter final as group winners.

Teams in last 8 are Chelsea, Reading, Norwich, Man City, Newcastle, Brighton and the 2 best runners up which can`t be decided until the final group match is played on Tuesday.

Stoke and Everton i think will complete the QF`s as best 2nd finishers- QF`s are just 1 match.
Amazingly all of the Royal`s 3 group matches were 4-3( 2 wins 1 loss) !!
Last Saturday`s match at Middlesborough saw the home team lead 3-0 before Hewitt, McGiff, Hamilton and Anderson scored 4 in the last 18 minutes.
As expected the fantastic Reading FC publicity machine have yet to mention we have qualified for the QF`s or a report on the website yet (or social media) but as it`s only Tuesday and the match was Saturday lunchtime i suppose we shouldn`t expect anything else.

Now Friday and still nothing from RFC about Saturday’s win at Middlesborough and the qualification for the QF’s.

Luke Southwood appears to have been given his chance at Hamilton having played in their 3-1 defeat to Rangers and 0-0 with Livingston. Wonder if the new Reading management will take another look at him.

His contract is up next summer right?
