Reading continued their preparations for the restart of the Championship this coming Saturday with a 3-1 victory over Portsmouth yesterday. The Royals got ready for playing behind closed doors with a friendly against League One Portsmouth inside an empty Madejski Stadium. Goals from Lucas Joao, Omar Richards and Michael Olise sealed the victory over a strong Portmsouth side. The Royals look the lead after half an hour when Swift's free-kick hit the crossbar and Joao made the most of the rebound. Reading were two goals up at half time after Richard scored at the near post from a cross. After half time Pompey pulled a goal back before Reading sealed victory after good work from Masika set-up Olise to make it 3-1. Reading also played a friendly at Chelsea's training ground last week where they were defeated 0-1.

The club have confirmed that all season ticket holders will be able to watch the remaining nine games on the clubs "iFollow" service. This would be as an alternative to being offered a refund or credit for remaining games. Season ticket holders need to contact the club if they would like money back or credit to use for next season's ticket - or by default they will be given the iFollow access instead.

There have been some slight changes to kick-off times, and Reading's revised fixture list for the remainder of the season is as below. Reading are still scheduled to be back in action this Saturday at the Madejski Stadium behind closed doors, against Stoke City, with a 3pm kick-off.
