The Tilehurst End Podcast Episode 174: Beating Bristol

Three points in the bag but still in the relegation zone, Reading’s win over the Robins only did so much to lift spirits around the club.

You can’t beat a win but you can ask some serious questions of how Reading got through their 3-2 triumph over Bristol City on Saturday, with the team still lodged inside the Championship relegation zone.

Two quickfire equalisers and a serious deficit in the battle for shots and possession meant it was far from a cruise at the Madejski Stadium, but at the very least the fans went home feeling pretty entertained throughout a breathless 90 minutes.

Chewing over all the goings on in this week’s edition of The Tilehurst End podcast are Marc Mayo and Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup, who answer your questions in the mailbag, preview the upcoming clash with lowly Ipswich, and debate the state of the league as a whole in pubchat. Also, apologies for the minor problems with audio quality this week as our connection drifted in and out of position worse than Simon Church.
