Reading FC will observe a minute silence ahead of kick-off against Brentford on Tuesday evening to remember those who lost their lives in the terror attack in Forbury Gardens last weekend.

The first team and coaching staff will all wear black armbands in honour of the three victims who were tragically killed against Derby County tomorrow and against Brentford next week.

The club have also asked supporters to pause and join the silence on Tuesday.

Reading terror attack: website about support set up for locals

A statement reads: "Although our supporters are not able to join us in tribute in person at Madejski Stadium, we would welcome all our fans to pause and fall silent at 5.59pm on Tuesday evening and to use that minute to remember those we lost last weekend, treasure what we all have and perhaps too often take for granted, and consider how we can best support those affected by the tragedy.

"We wanted to properly honour those we lost with a minute’s silence when we are next at home, surrounded by the Reading family, on Tuesday night. Together."
