Reading hold the unfortunate record of being the only League One club yet to sign any new players in the transfer record, with under a month before the campaign gets underway.

Peterborough United, who lost in the play-off's last season, visit the SCL Stadium in 24 days to mark the beginning of the club's first third tier campaign for over 20 years.

However, excitement and anticipation has been replaced with fear and frustration this summer as off-field issues have marred pre-season.

Despite embargoes being dropped for issues relating to loan player wages and FFP infringements, one remains for HMRC as a tax bill remains unpaid.

A court date of August 9 has been set, however the club hope to have the bill paid and problem resolved this week.

With a first-team squad of just 10, there has been a heavy reliance on the Academy to this point in order to fill out the squad.

Portsmouth lead the way with signings, bringing 10 new faces to Fratton Park ahead of the campaign.

Stevenage, Wigan Athletic, Port Vale, Derby County and Burton Albion have all made more than five.

Shrewsbury Town have only made one addition, with Barnsley, Leyton Orient and Northampton Town making two each.
