Birmingham claimed a 3-2 win at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday to leave Reading FC ruing the absence of Ovie Ejaria, John Swift and Sam Baldock.

The effect of their week away may push the club to the transfer window and Marc Mayo is joined by Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup to review the game. After the Recap, the guys answer your tactics questions in Mailbag, review the club’s Newsbites and look to the Barnsley game in Big Match Preview.
