- Tickets still available
- Listen on iFollow HTAFC

Town continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign on Saturday 22 January 2022 when they travel to the Select Car Leasing Stadium to take on Reading; 3pm kick-off.

We go into the game looking to extend our unbeaten run to nine, following the 1-1 draw against Swansea City on Saturday 15 January 2022.

Having lost 2-1 away to Middlesbrough on the weekend, Reading play again against Luton Town on Wednesday 19 January 2022.


Reading find themselves just outside of the bottom three in the Championship, just three points outside the drop zone.

The Royals have been on a disappointing run recently, having not won a game since their 3-2 victory over Swansea City on Saturday 27 November 2021.


Managed by Veljko Paunović, Reading will be out for revenge at the Madejski Stadium following Town’s 4-0 victory over them in the reverse fixture in August 2021.


Josh Laurent

Laurent has been a constant in the Reading midfield throughout the season, playing in every league game so far and securing two assists in the process. The 26-year-old joined The Royal in July 2020 as a free transfer from Shrewsbury Town, and has since proved to be a hit at the Madejski Stadium with his tireless performance in the midfield. During his first season with the Royals, Laurent only missed out on one game, a feat he will be trying to match this campaign.

Tom Dele-Bashiru

Dele-Bashiru joined Reading in the summer of 2021 on a season-long loan deal from Premier League side, Watford. The 22-year-old made his way through the ranks of Manchester City’s Academy, featuring at youth level alongside Jaden Sancho and Phil Foden. Since joining the Royals, Dele-Bashiru has fought his way into the starting line-up, making 24 appearances so far. Within those, the attacking midfielder has scored four goals and has assisted a further three goals so far this season.

Luke Southwood

The Reading ‘keeper joined the Club when he was just eight-years-old. After working his way through the Academy ranks, the 24-year-old made his Championship debut in the final game of 2020/21 season in a 2-2 draw against Huddersfield Town. Since this debut, he has fought his way to becoming the first choice ‘keeper for the Royals, making over 20 appearances so far this season.
