<< Season 1927-28 >>

The 1927-28 season got off to a bad start as Reading failed to record a win in their first twelve games. Added to two defeats at the end of the previous season, this is their worst-ever run of 14 League games without a win. However a good run of home results saw them narrowly avoid relegation.
