Southampton >>

Reading's first competitive game with Southampton ended in a 7-0 defeat. After the game, the Reading secretary approached his Southampton counterpart for an advance on their share of the record 4000 gate. He used the money to lodge an appeal with the FA that Southampton had fielded a couple of soldiers who were AWOL from their units, and the Saints were promptly disqualified. Recent meetings have been few and far between, with Reading knocking their top division opponents out of Cup competitions twice in the 1990s by slightly less underhand methods.
