26th December 2004- Championship, Reading 3 Watford 0


Reading kept up their promotion push as they cruised past struggling Watford.

…festive cheer has been spread throughout Hertfordshire and beyond by a sequence of results on the 26th December that (excluding today, but you can do your own maths) has seen us score just once in response to ten goals against. Because football doesn’t work like that, there’s a solitary win over Bristol City in 1998 – Gifton Noel-Williams by the corner flag, and all that – to confuse matters, but anyone looking for further highlights would have to make do with a couple of postponements. Or three nil-nil draws, including that one against Notts County and one at Wycombe twelve months later that has apparently (until now) been expunged from history in order to spare anyone from having to recall it.
