OverviewThese two clubs first came face-to-face in an FA Cup tie in 1894, but it was a day to forget for Reading. Indeed, The Royals were hammered 18-0 by Preston North End, which is one of the heaviest ever defeats in English football.
Since then things have improved in this fixture for the Berkshire-based club. The head-to-head is very even, and they have enjoyed some strong victories of their own. Reading strolled to a 6-0 success against The Lilywhites in the Third Division in 1990 and picked up a 5-1 win in the First Division in 2003.
