Reading fan groups have called on supporters to 'back the boys in blue and white' for Saturday's cruch clash with Wigan Athletic.

The Royals, without a win since February, now find themselves in a perilous situation in the Championship.

Staring relegation to League One in the face, Noel Hunt's men need to win both of their remaining matches and hope results elsewhere go in their favour.

For the final home match of the season, Supporters Trust at Reading [STAR] have teamed up with other groups such as Club 1871 and Elm Park Royals to encourage supporters to deck the SCL Stadium out in blue.

On track for a large crowd, potentially the largest of the campaign, the groups are imploring the supporters to drag the players over the line.

Posting on social media, they say: "Back the boys with blue and white.

"Beating Wigan Athletic is vital for Reading's survival hopes, and as fans, we must do all we can to make that happen.

"We're calling on everyone at Saturday's game to cover the SCL in blue and white- shirts, scarves, whatever you've got.

"The more blue and white the better!"

Over 2,300 tickets for the final day trip to Huddersfield Town were sold out within 48 hours.
