Oh, the optimism of Wednesday night. Of overcoming a staunch opponent with a quality late goal that sent the fans home happy. Perhaps Sheffield United were always the worst team to face immediately after beating Blackburn at the Mad Stad, but just 45 seconds into Saturday’s trip north, Reading fans were given their first reason to worry.

The resulting 4-0 defeat is the subject of The Tilehurst End podcast Episode 185, Marc Mayo joined by Dave ‘Handbags’ Harris to work out what Jose Gomes and his players got wrong at Brammal Lane, and what they can do to get three vital points over Rotherham on the weekend. In addition, the guys discuss Sone Aluko’s potential exit in Newsbites and answer your Mailbag questions.
