Mark Bowen tasted defeat for the first time as Reading FC manager on Saturday but may not be too distraught by coming out 1-0 losers in a scrappy affair.

The Tilehurst End Podcast is back after the international break with Marc Mayo joined by debutant Harry Chafer with a big old Mailbag full of questions to pore over, as well as the week’s goings-on at the club in Newsbites and a Big Game Preview for the visit of Leeds on Tuesday.

Jordan Obita has seen a lot in over a decade on the Reading FC books - and he's experienced most of it first-hand. A youth prodigy, a player of the season winner, a play-off goalscorer (and penalty shootout misser), a long-term injury absentee and a long-range supremo.

The Tilehurst End Podcast headed down to Hogwood recently to discuss all of the above and more with the left-back. In fact, the interview took place before he netted a maiden Madejski Stadium goal - so some foresight may be required for that part of the chat!

Mark Bowen has enjoyed a kind start to life as Reading FC manager, winning three of his four games against largely underperforming sides - none more so than the Luton team demolished 3-0 on Saturday.

Going into the international break, Marc Mayo and Jonny Williams delve into another enjoyable afternoon at the Mad Stad for Episode 209 of The Tilehurst End Podcast. We review the game, answer your Mailbag questions, discuss Lucas Boye’s return in Newsbites and Preview three tough games coming up.

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.
