Reading vs Stoke, iFollow, Saturday June 20, 3pm BST

After Mark Bowen arrived in October to replace Jose Gomes, things were beginning to look up for Reading: the Royals picked up 10 points in their first four matches and looked brimming with confidence again.

The Reading rut returned with a vengeance in the New Year, however. A magnificently clinical performance away at high-fliers Fulham left them five points from the top six: they’ve since slipped back down to 14th with five defeats and five draws in 2020.

Before the break, Bowen’s side had just put their first back-to-back league wins together since the Fulham game. With genuine quality in the team like Rafael and Pele though, Reading are always a tricky proposition on paper.

After a thumping 5-1 demolition of Hull City in the last match before lockdown, Stoke City wouldn’t have wanted the enforced break. 

Michael O’Neill hasn’t had it all his own way since taking to the hot seat in November but with six wins in 2020 - including an astounding 1-0 away win at West Brom, capped by a great defensive display - the former Northern Ireland boss has more than proved his worth in the club game so far.

Form has been promising, but Stoke aren’t out of the woods yet. Goals haven’t exactly come in droves for the Potters but with a few more results in the next few weeks, they should secure another season in the Championship.

Kick-off is at 3pm BST and the game is being shown on iFollow in the UK - the cost for UK residents is £10 per game, but just £6 for overseas viewers, so if you use a VPN you can get it cheaper. See below for watching details where you are.


Use a VPN to watch Reading vs Stoke live stream from outside your country (or cheaper for UK residents)

iFollow has every single EFL game for the rest of the season. 

Wednesday fans can watch here.
Forest fans can watch here.

It costs a tenner to see your team, but it only costs £6 if you are watching from overseas. So a smart tip is to get yourself a handy VPN, and set your location to overseas and pay less. We recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
