Football protestors have been urged to not cause disruption at the Reading v Bristol Rovers game.

It comes as Reading owner Dai Yongge has paid the two overdue bills to HMRC to prevent the club from making a trip to High Court next month.

Campaign group Sell Before We Dai, who organised the tennis ball protest out of "desperation" has since been told that further in-game disruption could result in match abandonment.

In a statement ahead of tonight's (November 7) 8pm kick-off, campaigners released a statement on X, formerly Twitter.

It read: "The tennis ball protest generated headlines and supercharged political support.

"Against Portsmouth, more than 2,000 Reading fans marched from the town to the ground to call for new owners and tighter regulation.  It was natural that tennis ball protests in the stadium would follow.

"Since then, the EFL have made it clear - via the club - that any further in-game disruption could result in match abandonment.

"Put bluntly, we were inclined to ignore them.

"The EFL had abandoned our club - we would abandon one of their matches.

"However, we now believe that tonight's match is not a match to get abandoned."
