The Reading Match Goes Ahead

8 years ago

Looking out of my Tyneside window the snow on the ground is no worse than it was when I went to bed and the club have confirmed that unless things rapidly deteriorate the Reading match will go ahead.

The official club website has said;

There has been about an inch of snow at the stadium which is currently in the process of being cleared from the pitch.

Given the preparatory work that took place and with the assistance of the Council the surroundings are in good shape and not a cause for concern at this time.

Based on the current position we do not envisage any issues with the game going ahead.

We will continue to monitor and update as necessary as the position may change if there is further significant snow fall.

Fingers crossed it goes ahead and Newcastle pick up three points obviously, if the game was called off and other teams picked up points then it could only increase the immediate pressure, regardless of having a game ‘in hand’.

NUFC to beat Reading 1-0 8/1
Cisse to score first goal 9/2
NUFC to lead at H/t and F/T 15/8
