The Hatters are back on their travels on Wednesday night when they travel to the Select Car Leasing Stadium to face Reading.

On the back of a late winner against AFC Bournemouth, confidence is high in the Town camp as they look to extend their unbeaten run to five matches in all competitions with a positive result at the Select Car Leasing Stadium. 


COVID information: 

In line with the latest government legislation, all supporters aged 18 or over should be prepared to present either proof of full vaccination via a valid COVID pass or proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of entry to the stadium.

For full details about the NHS COVID pass, which includes information on how to obtain valid certification of the COVID-19 vaccine, please click HERE.


The opposition:


Reading have struggled for form as of late and find themselves without a win in five games, just above the drop zone in the Sky Bet Championship after a devastating last-minute defeat against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

John Swift has been their main creative source with an impressive eight goals and nine assists to his name thus far, whilst the fit again striker Lucas Joao could be set to feature in midweek.


Last time we met:

There were four meetings between the two sides last season, the most recent of which was a goalless draw in April 2021.

Highlights from Kenilworth Road can be found on our YouTube channel below…


Follow the action:

The match will NOT be streamed on iFollow domestically, because it was originally scheduled to be a weekend fixture and in these circumstances, the home club makes the decision on whether to make the rearranged match available in the UK and Ireland. Reading have opted not to have a live video stream on this occasion. The stream WILL be available overseas.
