After 10 matches, Reading are among the top five best-attended teams in League One.

In the third tier for the first time since 2002, crowds have fallen after a decade of non-stop Championship action.

However, it remains impressive compared to those in League One.

Splitting their 10 league matches exactly five and five, so far the average crowd sits at 12,629.

Only Derby County, Bolton Wanderers, Portsmouth and Charlton Athletic average more than the Royals.

Reading Chronicle:

Relegated alongside Reading were Blackpool and Wigan Athletic, both of which have failed to attract averages of 11,000 yet.

The likes of Derby, Portsmouth and Oxford United are yet to visit the SCL Stadium, which will almost certainly attract the largest gates of the season.

However, it is a significant drop on last season's average of 14,027, with a single fixture yet to attract more than 14,000 as of yet.

Reading have not averaged under 13,000 for a whole season since 2000.

Away from home, Reading have taken more than 1,000 to four of their five League One matches; at Port Vale, Cambridge United, Exeter City and Northampton Town.

This is despite not winning away from home in 17 matches, since November 2022.
