Reading are the latest club to be added to the pre-season schedule as the Cobblers build up a competitive run of games leading up to the start of the new season. The Royals just missed out on promotion to the Premier League this season after that Playoff Final defeat at the hands of Swansea City and will provide a stern test. The game will take place on Saturday, July 23rd.
The last time the sides met was in the Carling Cup Second Round last season with the Cobblers setting up the Liverpool tie with a dramatic injury time equaliser in extra time followed by a penalty shoot out victory.
