Official Match Thread Reading 2-0 Southend (behind closed doors)

Oct 24, 2003
So, we have our first pre-season friendly tomorrow. Given the squad we currently have, and injuries - let's have a guess at the starting XI. I'll go for:


Bwomono Lennon Kiernan Clifford


Mantom Dieng Kightley

Humphrys Goodship​

and then at half-time he'll change to


Howard Taylor Jordan McLaughlin

Roberts Yearwood Klass Hutchinson

Robinson Kelman

I guess he might go for more of a mix and match between youth and experience (eg with Centre Backs), but I suppose tomorrow is more about fitness than anything else.
