Reading (H) Preview - Season 23/24, Episode 35

The losing run is over! and we finally have a CLEAN SHEET! What kind of witchcraft is this?!

In this week's episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee is joined by Mike Booth and Adam Tiffen (@adamtiffen18 on Twitter) to reflect on the last two fixtures - a 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers with a slightly more encouraging performance, and a battling 1-0 win at Burton Albion. Is this an end to the rot that United have faced since New Year, or just a false dawn?

That's followed by a look ahead to this weekend's home clash with Reading - including a chat with Alex from the excellent Elm Park Royals podcast, as the Royals prepare for their first visit to Brunton Park since the early 1980s.

On top of that, there's a news round-up and the usual Ex-Blues update.

Your host Lee Rooney is in Liverpool and is joined via the wonders of the internet by Adam Tiffen in Carlisle and Mike Booth in Formby. You can find us on Twitter @bruntonbugle, Facebook (search for "Brunton Bugle") and email us with any questions, suggestions and feedback to
