Reading are through to the second round of the League Cup after a huge 4-0 win awau at Millwall. The win was earnt by a very youthful Reading side that averaged just over 20 years of age, and came as a huge surprise. It was Ruben Selles first win, or anything other than a defeat, as Reading manager and only the third of his managerial career. Reading's first win since February 2023 came completely out of the blue after Selles swapped out a large number of first team players and opted to give game time to fringe players.

New signing American 18-year old Tyler Bindon was handed his first start immediately after signing and fellow 18 year old Caylon Vickers was impressive in his first starting appearance. Ehibhatiomhan put Reading in front inside the first minute after being supplied by Vickers and Reading's young team never looked back. In the second half Ehibhatiomhan scored his second and Reading looked comfortable when Charlie Savage scored his first Reading goal and his second ever competitive goal. Late on Mamadi Camara made his four with his first career goal.
