Monday night football see’s Reading City and Binfield clash

Both Reading City and Binfield saw their Saturday fixtures postponed but both sides will hope the weather allows Monday nights Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division tie at Scours Lane.

The match would be Simon Johnson’s first fixture in charge of City after stepping up to replace Rob Creech and he has two new signings to call on in Dan Davies and Sukhbir Hunjan.

Johnson tweeted at the weekend about the fixture, saying: “Massive game tomorrow against Roger Herridge and his Binfield side. Big challenge for my first game in management. Would be good to get a big crowd down to show their support! Looking forward to it.”

City are currently 14th in the league and Binfield 15th, though the Moles have four games in hand over their Monday night rivals.
