Everyone's favourite moment of the year - the team photo - has arrived! Sadly no repeats of the classic Harper-Kitson photobombing...! It's available on the Reading OS, with a direct link to the large photo available here.
Simon Church is piling on the pressure to challenge for a first-team berth - he hit a brace in a reserves match against AFC Wimbledon on Monday (GetBracknell), whilst telling the OS that he feels he's ready to take the plunge into the first XI.
Another Reading striker, Adam Le Fondre, has said that morale in the Reading camp isn't low despite the Royals' run of losses (VitalFootball).
Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood told the OS that the Royals are determined to halt their poor run of form and recognises his own drop in performance since last year, where he only lost once in a Reading shirt.
And a bit of transfer movement these last few days - left-back Marcus Williams has joined League One outfit Sheffield United for one month (VitalFootball), whilst winger Michail Antonio has extended his loan spell at Colchester United (Football365).
