Oxford at home.
We're almost at full strength and will have three or four new signings in the squad for their home debuts.
Gonna be a tough game I think.
The old adage "if you can't win then make sure you don't lose" is definitely the mantra for tomorrow.

We probably won't get a result out of it when you consider the quality of our opponents, but I really want us to put in a good performance as a collective and not the poor effort we saw at Exeter from most players.

Definitely seems from the rhetoric from Reading fans on Twitter some of them are going to try and get the game abandoned tomorrow. Obviously if they think it’s the best way to help save their club then do what you got to do. Hopefully our players can do a professional job among any protests. Can see it being a bit contentious if we are leading at the time if/when they try to do it but will cross that when it comes to it.

What are they planning to do to get it abandoned?

From what have seen there’s the tennis ball stuff they’ve done before but also a pitch invasion. We’ll see if they go through with it, last club I remember trying it was Oldham though seem to remember they kept the players around for a while then played the remainder behind closed doors.

Yeah a lot of suggestions on that or a sit in after the game. Feel for our fans going down especially with how much they are being charged etc but I suppose they are desperate now and seems most of our fans are backing them.

They’re all out on the pitch warming up at the moment. Am sure that might be an option if play gets halted. As I say I wish them all the best doing what they think is right to help save their club. I remember Mansfield fans showing us support during the worst times under Smurthwaite so would like to think we of all clubs can be understanding to Reading.

Sure enough on 16 minutes game halted with Reading fans on the pitch protesting. All the best to them with it.

1-0 at HT.

Lincoln have generally looked poor, although in fairness they did unleash a long-range banger than hit the crossbar, so they're still in the game.

The ref is probably the worst I've seen this season - I don't mean that in a "chip on the shoulder" way, he hasn't been particular unfair to us, but he's been shite for both sides - wildly inconsistent, letting some absolute wrestling moves go unpunished (for both teams) - which encourages both sides to push the envelope with their physicality - but then blowing up for some really soft nonsense (again, not just against us).

I’ll be amazed if this game restarts. Reading fans still on the pitch and lights gone off now.

Yeah poor first half from us. Passes gone astray, struggling to make any sort of impact. 1 chance from Duffy, but nothing else of any note.

Emergency in the stands at Bolton. It's been over half an hour and no word yet but have to assume they won't carry on. Hope everything is alright with the fan.

Portsmouth are choking . Hopefully we can make it more comfortable the second half. Exeter seem clueless.

What has happened?

Fans protesting the owner (something Vale and Blackpool fans know about). About 400 invaded the pitch on 16 minutes and only just leaving now as game has not long been abandoned. Expensive 16 minutes football that.

With so much of the game to play plus probably needing another warmup I can’t see it. Oh well not like we haven’t been used to playing Tuesday this season :lol:

Jenson Weir looked good for as long as the game lasted FWIW.

I didn't agree when we did it against Huddersfield but desperate fans lead to desperate measures. Will the game be replayed or classed as a draw?

Not sure at the moment. I’d expect with so much time in the game remaining it’ll be ordered to be replayed or could be a court case waiting to happen depending how the final table plays out. Hasn’t stopped one or two enquiries from some on Twitter if the game can be awarded to us but there’s Bob Hope of that.

Usual dross. Our away form is pathetic.
Clinging on due to points deductions FFS.
Still, I'm sure no one will panic and we will be seeing the same old shite at Barnsley in two weeks

Only positive from today is that Rhodes didn't score past us, like he usually does.

Absolutely fucking infuriating to concede in the 8th minute of 6 minutes stoppage time, but it was a poor game between 2 poor sides and LCFC were chucking the kitchen sink at it in the end.

So, fair enough - we move on, 1-1.

Always nice to score a last minute equaliser. Wycombe better team for majority of the game. Nice to make subs that helped make a difference and the pressure counted with a rare Erhahon goal stops the rot! Dodgy performance from the ref, but I'll take that with the promising signs towards the end.

One of our players has told their fans apparently we are getting the walkover but I would be very very surprised if that was the case.

I’m trying to think which of them would say that maybe Ripley on a windup? The others are too nice. Either way we won’t be getting awarded the three points. Think that would be a slippery slope if they did as much as I wouldn’t complain if they did.
