The Royals’ spot in next season’s Championship is all-but secure after draws at Bristol City and West Brom

Both Reading FC and West Brom had plenty of chances to take all three points from a boisterous Madejski Stadium on a sunny Easter Monday - but a 0-0 draw was enough to secure Jose Gomes’ men their Championship survival with two games to spare.

While not mathematically safe - Rotherham require a six-point, 13-goal swing in two games to overtake us - we can finally look ahead to next season and of course the upcoming season closers with much, much less stress. Doing so in Episode 193 of The Tilehurst End podcast are Marc Mayo and Simeon Pickup.

After recapping the Bristol and West Brom draws, the guys cover the rest of the club’s goings-on in Newsbites, answer your Mailbag questions, and preview the last away day of the season: Middlesbrough.
