Date night!

Top of the league with a game in hand? Something has to give. Probably resulting in a weak 1-0 loss and a couple of injuries to boot. It can't carry on like this, it's not natural.

Think we'll win tonight, Brittain and Phillips will be available so presuming we'll line up the same as the weekend.

BBD to score a timely hatrick to maximise his transfer value :hyper:

Feeling confident tonight based on start to season, especially after their game against Rotherham.
Sheffield ought to be the first big test but tbh I'd take a draw and a loss from these two though. 10 points from 15 would be an excellent start to the season.

JDT's post match comments are fun though. Win at the weekend then....

I take all responsibility failing to vote for the slashes.

I'd made the effort to go last night as well :roll:

We really weren't at it at all and Reading seemed to play with a real point to prove and were just better in every department across the whole 90 minutes.

3-0 aside Phillips looks very comfortable in the first team.

Enourmously predictable unfortunately :(
