Reading FC vs Middlesbrough

1 month ago Thu 23rd Sep 2021

Another weekend, and another chance to cheer on the Royals! This Saturday, Middlesbrough travel South to test themselves against Veljko Paunovic's men. With only two places and one point separating the teams, Reading will be looking to keep their three match unbeaten run going to keep climbing the table.

Buses to the game - 12.30pm kick off

As this game is an early kick-off, buses will run two and a half hours earlier than for a 3pm match. For example, the F1 will begin at 10.30am (normally from 1pm) from Station Hill WS and will leave the game starting 2.15pm (normally from 4.45pm).   

All our football services will be running, meaning you can catch our town centre shuttle, park and rides and the urban services to the match.
