(344 seasons)

Here the P3/PL column gives the average number of points per game, normalised to three points per win. This can be broken down by opponent as follows. Clubs are listed by their most recent name. The records are swapped so that they are from the point of view of Reading, hence HW denotes the number of Reading home wins, and so on. The ranking is on the basis of three points per win, this is given by the P3 column - the PTS column gives the actual number of points gained, whether under two or three points per win. Games played on neutral grounds are included in the away record. When extra time is played, the result is that at the end of the match, rather than after 90 minutes. Matches settled on penalties count as draws.
