Reading fans are set to face travel disruption for Saturday's trip to Coventry City as lines remain shut between Oxford and Didcot Parkway.

Around 1,000 Royals have purchased tickets for the trip to the Midlands on the weekend as Noel Hunt's men look to pull themselves out of relegation danger.

The nearest remaining away match, tickets sales have picked up following the appointment of Hunt as interim manager.

However, those travelling by train can no longer go directly to the city as urgent repairs to a bridge between Didcot Parkway and Oxford are taking place- closing the line until June.

According to Trainline, the best route suggested now means going into London and back out of the city- taking up to two-and-a-half hours.

With the railways an issue, this could have a knock-on effect for those planning on driving, with roads potentially being busier than originally expected.

Supporters Trust at Reading still have seats on their official coaches remaining, but this is for members only.

Tickets remain on sale via the club for the penultimate away match of the campaign.
