Royals slip into relegation zone

Royals slip into relegation zone

With the Royals not playing until Monday, Saturday's results have seen us drop back into the relegation zone for the first time since August.

Peterborough won only their second game of the season at home to Scunthorpe, 3-0, thanks to goals from Adam Boyd (2) and Craig Mackail Smith.

The divisions bottom two sides met in the West Country with Plymouth and Ipswich playing out a 1-1 draw to gain a point on the Royals.

Mondays home game against Leicester has now become even more important as we are in danger of being cut adrift from the middle pack.
