Sunderland v Reading FC postponed
August 25, 2012
The Premier League fixture between Sunderland AFC and Reading FC has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The referee and both managers inspected the playing surface at 1.30pm before deciding to call the game off.
Reading manager Brian McDermott said: "When you prepare for a game, you're ready to play and you come to a Premier League ground in August and don't get to play, it is a bit bizarre. I've never seen anything like it - it was unplayable.
"We have to deal with that and now prepare for our game against Peterborough."
McDermott also revealed that Royals are currently working on organising a friendly game in Ireland during the upcoming international break.
