Report arriving soon hopefully...
But here's some very quick details of yet another away defeat, that keeps us down there in 19th place...

Birmingham took a 0-1 lead before half time. Paul Holsgrove put the Royals level after 50 minutes. Reading then enjoyed their best spell of the game until Macca handled the ball inside the area to concede a penalty. 1-2. Caskey and Morley both went close to putting the Royals back on level terms - Caskey's effort was cleared off the line. Then Bobby, who had been having an OK game, was probably at fault for City's third. In the last minute of the game Gilkes miscued a clearance to put the ball into his own net to make it a final score of 1-4 to City.
