Reading began their League One campaign with a familiar feeling of defeat - but there were plenty of positive signs as Reading were unlucky to lose their opening game of the season. Despite the huge changes of playing staff over the summer, there was a familiar feel about Reading with only two new players in the starting eleven as Charlie Savage and Harvey Knibbs made their Reading debuts. Later in the game Selles introduced Lewis Wing, Tivonge Rushesha, and academy player Caylan Vickers who also all picked up their first Reading appearance.

The Royals were the better side in the first half, but despite their efforts found themselves a goal behind just before the break when a cross was headed past Bouzanis in the Reading goal. Both sides had chances in the second half with Bouzanis pulling off a excellent save to keep Reading in the game but Peterborough - who finished 6th last season in League One - held out to start the season with a win.
