Engineering works on the Thameslink service between Wimbledon and Sutton could disrupt Reading fans attending Saturday's pre-season friendly with Sutton United.

Hundreds of Royals are expected to make the trip to Gander Green Lane for the Royals' first friendly open to supporters in the UK.

It marks a reunion for Aussie keeper Dean Bouzanis, who played over 100 times for Sutton before moving to Berkshire.

Having never played a first team game against the Yellows, it is a chance for supporters to see the side in action before the League One campaign and cross off a new ground.

However, fans are urged to travel from Victoria or London Bridge to Sutton as there are no Thameslink trains through West Sutton station, the station outside the ground.

Sutton station is a 15-20 minute walk away from the stadium.
