The Royals travel to Staffordshire before the international break.

Reading will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday night’s 3-0 defeat to Leeds when they travel to Stoke City on Saturday - the Potters being the lowest ranked side that we have left to play. With that in mind, in our Weekend Preview podcast, Olly Allen and the Wokingham Paper’s Tom Crocker discuss the Royals’ chances at the bet365 Stadium, the role that academy players could play and how to solve the seemingly never-ending midfield issue. As always, we also get the opposition view, and this week we’re joined by Stoke fan David Cowlishaw from the Wizards of Drivel podcast.
