Reading playing on Valentine’s Day upset one supporter enough to tweet a message of complaint to the club, but his views did not appear to be shared by the large majority of respondents.
With the team set to play Brentford at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday, the Championship fixture clashes with an important night in the romantic calendar.
Jonathan Russell asked:
@ReadingFC why play on Valentine's? Neither myself or any of my friends will attend as spending time with partners. Why not switch to Wed?
