Hat's entertainment

Reading return to league action on Saturday following an extended break for international fixtures and it's a chance for the travelling army to visit a new ground as we head up to Warwickshire for our first visit to Coventry's Ricoh Arena. It promises to be a colourful ocassion as STAR (Supporters Trust at Reading) have promoted this fixture as fans day, Hob Nob Anyone contributors have deemed it should be hat day ( and there is traditionally a good Reading following for the comparatively short hop to Coventry. It's a team we haven't fared very well against in recent seasons so Floyd on Football reasons we must be due a win against them after they did the double over us last term.

The team news isn't overly encouraging though. Shorey, Sidwell and Kitson have been ruled out for around a month each after injuries suffered last time out against Burnley. To strengthen the squad, Coppell made a last ditch signing on transfer deadline day last Wednesday by bringing in frenchman Sekou Baradji from West Ham. Baradji played in today's 2-0 reserve win over Brighton, but our other recent signing Eric Obinna Chukwynyely is yet to make his reserve debut as he does not have the international clearance from the German FA who hold his registration following the striker's recent spell with Kaiserslautern.
