Over 1,100 Reading supporters are travelling to Saturday's match at Shrewsbury Town, hoping to see the club break an unwanted record.

The Royals, bottom of League One and eight points adrift of safety, have seen their average away following increase so far, with the club averaging more than 1,000 supporters at each of their seven away matches.

Another four-figure crowd are following their side to Shropshire, a first visit to Shrewsbury since 1991.

They will be hopeful of seeing a win, otherwise, they will be witnessing history for all the wrong reasons as it will mark a calendar year without a win on the road in league football.

Saturday, November 12 2022, a last-gasp win at Hull City, was the most recent win away from Berkshire for the Royals.

A run stretching 19 league matches, across the Championship and League One, a draw or defeat at Croud Meadow will mark 364 days without a win.

They don't play again until almost 2,000 supporters make the short trip to Wycombe Wanderers, by which point it will have been over 375 days.

Only Rotherham United have gone longer without an away win, currently on 20.

Up to 500 tickets remain on sale for Royals fans, with an option to pay on the day at the stadium.
