Reading's clash with Coventry City on Saturday has been rescheduled to allow supporters more time to get home in time for England's World Cup quarter-final with France.

The Royals' first game back after a four week break for the international competition, the Sky Blues, along with a sold-out away backing, are heading down to Berkshire.

With the possibility of a clash spotted early, the EFL gave clubs permission to rearrange the fixture, providing both clubs agree.

Originally a 3pm kick-off, it will now start an hour early at 2pm.

Turnstiles will open from 12.30, while the football buses will also begin an hour earlier than usual.

It marks the final home match before Christmas, with schools and sports club given cheap tickets to create a carnival atmosphere in RG2.

Three other second tier matches are also kicking off early, making it eight EFL fixtures in total.
