Reading FC missed the chance to extend their good start under Mark Bowen on Saturday due to a waterlogged postponement at Nottingham Forest - but there is still plenty to discuss on The Tilehurst End Podcast.

A 2-2 draw at QPR saw the Royals fight back from behind twice and we review the clash with Marc Mayo and Dan ‘Wimb’ Wimbush. We also discuss the Championship as a whole in Newsbites, read out your thoughts in Mailbag, and look to the Millwall match in Big Game Preview.

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.
