It’s a difficult period for anyone associated with football at the moment, with the season being called to an abrupt halt due to recent off-the-field events.
But given the current situation, it is understandable that sporting events have been temporarily postponed until further notice.
It means that the Championship promotion race has stopped for the time being, and it’ll be a closely-fought battle for a top-six finish when the season does get back underway.
Reading defender Liam Moore has recently called on the club’s supporters to put him in contact with individuals who could benefit from a chat with the Royals captain during this difficult period in the UK.
FAO #readingfc fans. Anybody with friends or relatives that are alone during the lockdown and would get a moral boost from a call slide into my DM’s 💙

Moore went through a number of calls during the lockdown, and is certain to have raised some smiles amongst some of the Madejski Stadium faithful.
Plenty of Reading supporters took to social media to praise Moore for his heartwarming gesture on Saturday.
