Leeds United vs. Reading FC 2016 gamethread: Time, TV schedule and how to watch online

Will the #TimeToGoMassimo crowd overshadow the game on the pitch? Can Evans top McDermott? We find out in about an hour.

Brian McDermott comes back to Leeds with his Reading FC squad, and both sit at 51 points after 41 games. It should be a close match at Elland Road in this all-important battle for 14th place.

The bigger story of the day, likely, will be what happens off the field. The #TimeToGoMassimo protest march is going on now against the backdrop of Thursday's YEP asking how much more Leeds United fans will have to take. Will the off-the-field controversy distract the players on it? I'd guess not, considering it's just part of playing at Leeds at this point, but who knows?

Anthony Linley wrote up another of his amazing previews, make sure to read that before this match, and check out our Leeds Against The World Q&A with fellow SB Nation blog The Tilehurst End. It's a SBN-derby day of sorts, let's get the three points for bragging rights.

Enjoy the game, and remember to follow our live tweets on @ThruItAllLIVE (also embedded below) and leave some comments, dang it! This is a game thread after all. We're trying to build our community here at Through It All Together as best as possible; if you have any ideas for us (articles you'd like to see, players we should feature, social media we should use, staff we should sack...), let us know!
