Reading FC were able to indulge in a game that didn’t really matter on Saturday, coming away from the inflatables day at Middlesbrough with a 2-1 defeat.

The highlight came in Danny Loader’s early screamer and The Tilehurst End podcast credits the teenager with showing his class having faced questions over his ability in recent weeks. Marc Mayo is joined by Olly Allen to discuss the game and delve into the summer transfer window in Pubchat, a topic that features heavily in your Mailbag questions. Episode 194 is then capped off by a look ahead to Birmingham City in Any Other Business.

It’s not a scenario Reading expected to be in, but they travel to Middlesbrough on Saturday with little to play for as Championship safety has been all but secured. Olly Allen and the Wokingham Paper’s Isaac Farnworth discuss how the Royals approach the game against a Boro side with an excellent defence but poor attack, whilst Chris Gunter, Danny Loader and Tom McIntyre are all topics of conversation in the team news section.

For the View from the Town End this week, we’re joined by Jonny, Dana and Elliott from the Boro Breakdown Podcast.

Both Reading FC and West Brom had plenty of chances to take all three points from a boisterous Madejski Stadium on a sunny Easter Monday - but a 0-0 draw was enough to secure Jose Gomes’ men their Championship survival with two games to spare.

While not mathematically safe - Rotherham require a six-point, 13-goal swing in two games to overtake us - we can finally look ahead to next season and of course the upcoming season closers with much, much less stress. Doing so in Episode 193 of The Tilehurst End podcast are Marc Mayo and Simeon Pickup.

After recapping the Bristol and West Brom draws, the guys cover the rest of the club’s goings-on in Newsbites, answer your Mailbag questions, and preview the last away day of the season: Middlesbrough.

Some games turn on a knife edge and Reading FC were on the wrong end of some big players converting, or failing to convert, their big chances in Saturday’s defeat to Hull City.

After going a goal up, the Royals hit the bar and even had great openings for Mo Barrow and Nelson Oliveira go begging before the hosts sealed a 3-1 win. To round off the action, Marc Mayo is joined by Matt ‘Pannas and Nutmegs’ Lawrence for The Tilehurst End Episode 191.

With the Player of the Season award drawing into view, the guys preview the contenders for that honour in Pubchat, answer your questions in the Mailbag and ponder exactly how many Reading will concede in the midweek trip to Norwich for Any Other Business.

Reading FC lifted themselves four points clear of the relegation zone with a huge 2-1 win over in-form Preston North End on Saturday with Yakou Meite and Mo Barrow turning into quite the double act at the heart of the Royals’ attack.

It was the rapid duo that provided the goals and The Tilehurst End podcast are back to work out exactly what they do that terrifies defences so much. Marc Mayo is joined by Dan ‘Wimb’ Wimbush to analyse the game, review the goings on around the club in Newsbites, answer your Mailbag questions, and look ahead to a trip to Nigel Adkins’ Hull.
