Mark Bowen kept up his unbeaten start as Reading FC manager with a 2-1 win over Millwall on Saturday, the three points accompanied by two world class efforts from Jordan Obita and Sam Baldock.

For academy product Obita, it marked his return from a horrific knee injury that almost ended his career while Baldock is enjoying his own comeback story having been dropped by Jose Gomes. Marc Mayo and Westy reconvene for Episode 208 of The Tilehurst End Podcast to recap the win, answer your Mailbag questions, discuss the Player of the Month in Newsbites, and look to the meeting with Luton in Big Game Preview.

Mark Bowen began life as Reading FC manager with the latest of late wins against Preston on Saturday, Matt Miazga firing home the vital 97th minute winner.

Jose Gomes has left the building after a poor start to the season that failed to build on some promising outings and currently has Reading in the bottom three.

The Tilehurst End Podcast convenes for an impromptu recording - hence the occasional traffic noises - as Marc Mayo and Olly Allen discuss what went right, what went wrong and what comes next for the Royals. At the time of our chat, Mark Hughes was set to replace Gomes and we also consider how he could fit in at the Mad Stad.

As it’s the international break we thought we would take a week off from podcasting duties - then a member of Reading’s best-ever team said he was free for a chat and, well, here we are!

Glen Little enjoyed three spells at Madejski Stadium, winning the Championship in one and reaching the play-offs in the other two. From a career that took off in Northern Ireland and travelled through the likes of Burnley, Portsmouth and Wrexham, we discussed a bright career on and off the pitch.
