Huge congratulations to Jem Karacan who Nigel Adkins has confirmed will be our new club captain this season. Great to see Jem come through the Academy and grow so much both on and off the pitch.
Wishing you every success, skip!
FULL TIME: Yeovil Town 1-1 Reading. Pogrebnyak’s opener was cancelled out by a triallist’s far post header, but another good run out for the Royals here at Huish Park.
GOAL! It’s 1-1. Federici couldn’t do anything about that one, a deep free kick is nodded low past the Aussie stopper at the far post. It’s level.
Royals boss Nigel Adkins has made a host of changes on the hour mark. Team as it stands now: Federici, Cummings, Long, Cooper, Hyam, Kuhl, Tshibola, Kelly, Stacey, Fosu, Robson-Kanu. Virtually a u21s side.
Morrison has hit the crossbar with a header and Hal has already forced the keeper into a very good low save with a rasping effort from the edge of the box, but Federici at the other end has also produced an incredible save to keep it 0-1.
GOAL! The Royals have the lead as Edwards’ superb cross from the left is powered home by the diving head of Pavel Pogrebnyak. Krysiak couldn’t keep it out. 0-1.
HALF TIME: Yeovil 0-0 Reading. A goalless but largely entertaining first half. Some nice stuff from Nigel Adkins’ men, but Yeovil had maybe the best chance right at the end of the half, McCarthy saving well from Ajay Leitch-Smith.
Midway through the first half here at Huish Park and the game is goalless. The Royals bossed the first fifteen minutes but Yeovil have enjoyed a good spell in the last five or ten. 0-0.
We’re underway here at Huish Park. Second pre-season of the summer has just kicked off!
TEAM NEWS from a very wet and thundery Huish Park. Many changes, of course, expected to be made in the second half. Youngsters Liam Kelly, Tariqe Fosu and Dom Hyam are named in a first team squad for the first time.
