Reading 3 Forest 1 – Tuesday October 31st 2017

Aaah crushing disappointment, always lurking somewhere close by.

It’s a long way back from Reading when your team have lost. And it’s even more painful when the Highways Agency organise their lane and road closures around Forest away games. I appreciate the partial randomness of the fixture computer but surely more should be done to avoid fans trekking hundreds of miles in the week. I read the recent piece from the EFL about purposely arranging these long fixtures to fall on evening kick offs to maximise bigger weekend games but that’s not much fun when you are queuing on the M40 gone 11pm at night.

The things we do, eh?
