    • Rooney’s side out of bottom three despite Wilshere debut
    • Deeney penalty sinks Barnsley but Xisco wants more

    Wayne Rooney was keen to shift the praise towards his players after landing his first win as permanent Derby manager.

    Krystian Bielik’s tidy finish in the first half was enough to see off promotion-chasing Bournemouth 1-0 at Pride Park. The Rams were good value for the win and it was a victory which lifted them out of the bottom three.

    Hull moved to the top of League One with a 3-0 win over 10-man Accrington. The result sees Hull edge clear of Lincoln on goal difference after the Imps' match at home to Gillingham fell victim to a waterlogged pitch. Portsmouth sit one point from the summit after a 4-0 win over AFC Wimbledon that saw John Marquis, Ryan Williams, Sean Raggett and Ben Close find the net. Doncaster stayed fourth as Jon Taylor's goal was enough to see off Rochdale 1-0, keeping them level on points with fifth-placed Peterborough who came from behind to beat Charlton – who stay sixth but fall three points behind. 

    Newport keeper Tom King scored directly from a goal kick before promotion rivals Cheltenham hit back to earn a 1-1 draw at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium. Matty Blair's equaliser for the home side in first-half stoppage time denied Newport the chance to move back to the top of League Two and kept Michael Duff's Robins in touch with the frontrunners. Newport had taken the lead in bizarre circumstances as King's wind-assisted kick bounced on the edge of the Cheltenham box before looping over a helpless Josh Griffiths in the Robins goal. Cambridge moved to the top of the table after coming from a goal behind to win 2-1 at SouthendTranmere moved into the top half thanks to a 3-2 win against fourth-placed Forest Green.

  • Thu, 14 Jan 2021 08:00:33 +0000: Championship at halfway: miracles at Swansea and a Rooney-led revival - Reading | The Guardian

    Norwich are top but have not hit full tilt and Neil Warnock is targeting a remarkable ninth promotion with Middlesbrough

    Things could soon get snug at the summit but, for now, leaders Norwich have a four-point advantage over Swansea, where Steve Cooper continues to work minor miracles. For Daniel Farke the good news is that in 11 of the past 12 seasons, the team top at Christmas have clinched promotion. The bad news? For their rivals, it is that they are not yet at full tilt. Norwich have the same manager and almost an identical team to the one that secured this crown two years ago – the Tottenham loanee Oliver Skipp has slotted into midfield – but it is largely a tried and trusted formula; Tim Krul in goal, Max Aarons marauding into the box, Emi Buendía pulling off preposterous passes, and Teemu Pukki putting the ball in the net.

    Omar Richards is expected to sign a pre-contract agreement with Bayern Munich that would lead to the Reading defender joining the European champions at the end of the season.

    Richards has been one of Reading’s star performers in the Championship this season and the 22-year-old is out of contract in June.

    • Lowe scores twice as Swansea beat Watford

    The Norwich manager, Daniel Farke, has insisted Emi Buendía will be staying at club after watching him produce another brilliant winner to see off Barnsley 1-0 at Carrow Road.

    The Argentinian playmaker settled the game in memorable fashion just past the hour when he volleyed home a deep lofted pass, his sublime first touch leaving Jack Walton with no chance.

    The return of Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink as manager could not inspire bottom club Burton, who slipped to a 5-1 home defeat against Oxford. Matt Taylor and two Olamide Shodipo goals put the visitors out of sight, despite Kane Hemmings' consolation, before the break, with Josh Ruffels adding a fourth and fifth in the second half. 

    Carlisle made the most of previous leaders Newport County’s frozen pitch to move into top spot after beating Walsall 2-0. Omari Patrick fired the opener into the roof of the net, with Joshua Kayode putting the result beyond doubt.

    • Boos and jeers came from outside the Liberty Stadium
    • Brentford come from behind to move into promotion places

    Swansea are set to launch an investigation after their goalless draw with Reading was marred by booing and jeering outside the Liberty Stadium as both teams took the knee before kick-off.

    The Welsh side will aim to get to the bottom of the issue after it happened for their second successive home game. As both sides took the knee before kick-off in support of anti-racism causes, a loud series of horns and booing noises was heard from a group gathered outside the ground. It is unclear who the group were or what their motives were.

Reading Transfers

The Latest Reading FC Transfer News

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Newly promoted Reading have been scouting out many possible additions to their squad for next season with manager Brian McDermott having a large number of possible targets he wishes to bring to the Madjeski for the season kick off in August. The Royals manager has stated he would like to reinforce in all departments for next season with a mixture of new and experienced players.

Reading have just offered a contract to up and coming high flying goal keeper Stuart Taylor after the player
enjoyed a successful trial spell at the club in recent weeks. The Royals have been looking for a long term replacement in the goal keeping department for some time and look set to make Taylor the man to do the job as long as the club and the player can agree personal terms before the season kicks off.

Goal keeper Mikkel Anderson looks like he will be heading in the other direction to Portsmouth this summer after the club decided they wished to sign Taylor to replace him and Pompey manager Appleton is extremely keen on the young goal keeper. The southern club have offered to take the player on loan for the season but Reading seem coy on this idea as they would much prefer to dispense with his services on a permanent deal but as of yet both clubs are unable to reach an agreement on the situation so the drama continues.

Young Watford starlet Adrian Mariappa is the first signing of the summer for the Royals as he has just arrived on a three year deal from the London club. The talented Jamaican international central defender is a great addition to the Royals squad and McDermott believes the player will offer them a new dimension in the heart of their defence for next season.

Another player who looks all set to arrive at the Madjeski this summer is Nottingham Forest full back Chris Gunter who has been a long term target of the club for some time. The Welsh international has been out of favour at Forest for the better part of last season and now is keen and excited to the prospect of life in the premier league and the deal looks all set to go through within the next couple of weeks as long as the player agrees personal terms and passes the clubs medical.

In recent weeks there has been growing speculation that the Royals have been enquiring about gaining the services of Jermain Defoe from Tottenham after the striker endured a bit part season last year for his home club. Defoes chances in the first team were extremely limited and now the striker may look elsewhere to ply his trade if talks with the club break down this summer which will leave the door right open for the Royals to bring the player to the Madjeski.
