Tough start for Reading

Relegated Reading have been handed a tricky trip to newly-promoted Nottingham Forest on the opening day of the Coca-Cola Championship season.

The Royals were relegated on the final day of last season despite a 4-0 win at Derby, and will line up on the opening day against a side who were automatically promoted courtesy of a 3-2 win over Yeovil.

Forest spent three seasons at League One level after being relegated in 2005, and face a trip to League One champions Swansea in their second game of the season - but Forest fans will be rushing to put the dates of November 1 and February 21 in their diaries as that is when they face fierce rivals Derby.
