Reading fans face yet more disruption as the trip to Cardiff City in February has been moved for Sky Sports coverage.

Always a popular trip for Royals fans to make, instead of the original 3pm kick-off on Saturday, February 18, it is now due to take place at 8pm on Friday, February 17.

This causes particular issues as there are no trains returning to Reading after 9.30pm, meaning supporters will have to drive or stay overnight.

Becoming the club's seventh match broadcast live on Sky, it will also mean the side face three matches in six days.

Facing a long trip to Sunderland and a home match with Rotherham United in the week before the trip to Wales.

Never backwards in coming forwards when it comes to discussing the frequency of fixtures on television, Reading boss Paul Ince is extremely critical of the disruption.

Speaking after the 1-0 defeat to West Brom last week, he said: "We played three games in less than six days. It’s absolutely ridiculous. We’ve been to Norwich, get back at two in the morning and you have two days before going up to West Brom. Three tops teams who are very possession-based and we’ve played in less than six days. Ludicrous."
