AFC Bournemouth Sell Full Allocation For Reading FC Game

Tuesday's game at the Madejski Stadium will at least have one stand full, as Bournemouth confirm they've sell out their initial allocation.

Championship leaders Bournemouth have confirmed that they've sold their full initial allocation of 3,500 tickets for Tuesday's Championship clash at the Madejski Stadium.

It's hardly a surprise given that Bournemouth are closing in on the Premier League for the first time in their history and ticket sales for their final game of the season at Charlton saw some fans queue OVERNIGHT to get their hands on a seat. Promotion fever is certainly gripping the fans of the South Coast side to the point that they've now requested any extra tickets from Reading ahead of next week's game.

From a Reading point of view this one could be painful to watch as with an FA Cup Semi-Final just four days afterwards, it's unlikely that Steve Clarke will want to risk too many senior players. The last time a league game fell before a big cup tie we saw nine changes and a 4-1 thumping by Watford so lord only knows what the league's highest goalscorers might do to us.
