The Tilehurst End Podcast - Episode 121: The Art Of Winning Ugly

It was far from pretty but Reading got the job done against Wolves and our TTE Podcast crew are here to talk Popa, GMac's absence, poor pitches, resliance, standing In Y26 and much more.

This week's Tilehurst End Podcast sees our hosts mull over Reading's scrappy 2-1 over Wolves that got their play-off campaign fully back on track. We'll pick out the best and worst from a tricky game for Jaap Stam's side, including our thoughts on Adrian Popa's debut, how best to use Garath McCleary going forward, Tyler Blackett, Joey van den Berg and much more.

Newsbites sees us look into a McCleary injury update, while in the mailbag we answer your questions on standing inside the Mad Stad, signage, five v four at the back and whether this season needs to end in promotion to safeguard the club.

All that, plus a look ahead to our games with Newcastle and Preston on our 121st Tilehurst End Podcast.
