The Supporters' Trust At Reading (STAR) has called for an urgent meeting with the club's hierarchy as the situation around the Select Car Leasing Stadium continues to spiral both on and off the pitch.

Events of recent weeks have seen supporters grow more and more frustrated with the silence from the club's owner and upper management as results and performances on the pitch steadily get worse. The growing frustration was capped off by Saturday's dismal exit of the FA Cup at the hands of Kidderminster Harriers.

The statement from STAR reads:

"Following recent events, the Supporters' Trust At Reading, have today asked Reading FC to urgently bring forward the date of our next scheduled Structured Dialogue Meeting.

"In our view, this meeting should take place within the next two weeks with at least the Chief Executive Officer and Finance Director in attendance.

"The key items on the agenda would be:

"1) How to address the negativity around the club (from team performance and stadium experiences, etc)

"2) The perceived lack of direction and connection with the fanbase

"3) The club's response. to the Fan Led Review proposals - the implementation of which would go some way to addressing points 1) and 2)."

Reading next face Fulham at home in the Championship on Tuesday night as they look to put some energy back into their flailing season.
