It was a late goal that denied Reading a useful win at Brentford on Saturday and The Tilehurst End podcast returns to determine if the draw is one to feel good about despite the initial feeling of a missed opportunity.

Two rather fortunate goals gave the visitors a fighting chance at Griffin Park and, with the hosts down to ten men, a headed equaliser still meant that Reading were the first team to avoid defeat away to the Bees this season.

With the QPR game previewed ahead of Tuesday night’s game, Marc Mayo and Will Jones also take an in-depth look back at the 2008/09 season, ten years on. Have you any memories on Steve Coppell’s last, somewhat futile campaign? Get in touch!

It’s a tricky trip to Brentford for Reading this weekend as they look to build upon their 3-0 win over Hull, a result which has given Olly Allen and the Wokingham Paper’s Tom Crocker a bit of hope in this week’s podcast. The pair also discuss the Royals’ team news, including how Paul Clement moves the defence around after John O’Shea’s red card and whether Mo Barrow should be restored to the side from the start. Our opposition view this week comes from Billy Grant from Brentford podcast Beesotted.

Yet another dour defeat was followed up by the first home league win in 182 days this week as Reading FC showed that inconsistency at least means you occasionally win.

With a week off before the trip to Brentford, the mood has certainly been lifted around the Mad Stad thanks to the 3-0 beating of Hull, but will it last?

Joining Marc Mayo to chew over the position Paul Clement’s team find themselves in are Simeon ‘BucksRoyal’ Pickup and Paula Martin, who updates the show on all things Reading FC Women and STAR.
