Championship 2008-09 Preview - Reading

Perhaps unsurprisingly following their relegation from the Premiership, it’s been a summer in which Reading have had to endure constant speculation as to the future of their better players. To date Dave Kitson and Nicky Shorey are the only notable losses, although there is always the possibility that others may still go. As such it’s difficult to assess Reading’s chances of bouncing back at the first attempt, although if the likes of Kevin Doyle, James Harper and Stephen Hunt stay put, Steve Coppell’s boys should certainly be there or thereabouts.
