Pre-season

Summer Transfers Left-back Marcus Williams joined Reading on a free transfer on 11 May 2010, having played seven seasons for Scunthorpe United. Right-back Andy Griffin signed for the club for a nominal fee on 1 July, having made 25 league appearances for Reading, on loan from Stoke City in the 2009-10 season. The transfer deadline day saw the arrival of Zurab Khizanishvili on loan from Blackburn Rovers and Ian Harte from Carlisle United.

Marek Matejovsky joined Sparta Prague for a fee of £650,000 on 11 June 2010, having made 56 appearances for the Royals in two and a half years at the club. Kalifa Cissé left the club after three years, signed by former Reading manager Steve Coppell for Bristol City on 9 July 2010. Cissé made 83 appearances for Reading, scoring seven goals. The transfer window also saw the departure of Gylfi Sigurdsson to Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim for £7 million.

Friendlies

Reading opened their pre-season campaign with a 1-0 victory over Farnborough, Noel Hunt scoring the winning goal.

The Royals then departed on tour to Slovenia, where they enjoyed a 3-1 victory over a Red Star Belgrade B-side, a game in which Marcus Williams made his first appearance for the club. Alex Pearce headed a first-half response for Reading, after Belgrade had taken the lead, and Simon Church sealed the victory with two second-half goals. A third consecutive win followed, as Reading defeated top-flight Croatian side NK Inter Zaprešić 2-0, with goals from Matt Mills and James Henry. Reading then suffered their first loss of the pre-season campaign, in the final game of the tour, with a 1-0 defeat against NK Celje, striker Gorazd Zajc scored the only goal in the game.

Returning to England, Reading got back to winning ways, coming from behind to beat Wycombe Wanderers 2-1, thanks to goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson, from the penalty spot, and Hal Robson-Kanu. Another 2-1 victory followed in the Royals penultimate pre-season friendly, as another Sigurdsson penalty, and a second half goal from Michail Antonio saw Reading past Wolves. Reading's final game of pre-season was a 4-2 victory at Southampton, courtesy of goals from Sigurdsson, Simon Church (2) and Antonio.

August

Reading's league season began in disappointing style with a 2–1 home defeat to Scunthorpe. After the visitors had taken an early lead through a disputed Garry Thompson goal – the linesman flagging for offside and subsequently overruled by the referee – Gylfi Sigurdsson put Reading on level terms from 25 yards. Despite enjoying spells of pressure, the Royals were unable to find another goal, and Rob Jones headed home a corner to give Scunthorpe the victory.

Reading progressed to the second round of the League Cup with a narrow victory over Torquay United, Grzegorz Rasiak bundling home the winner in the final minute of extra-time. A league draw at Portsmouth followed, the Royals coming from behind to take a point as Jimmy Kebe poked the ball home in the 87th minute following a goal-mouth scramble. The next game Reading went 1-0 up against promotion favourites Nottingham Forest from an Alex Pearce volley but goalkeeper Adam Federici made a horrible mistake in gifting Forest the equaliser by kicking the ball into Jem Karacan which resulted in Robert Earnshaw turning in from close range. Then Reading played League 2 opponents Northampton in the League Cup in which Reading went 1-0 up courtesy of a Matthew Mills backheeler from a Brian Howard corner. Northampton equalised with a horrible mistake from goalkeeper Ben Hamer where he dropped the ball two times in a row to allow Andy Holt to tap in. Reading went back into the lead with a goal from Hal Robson-Kanu after some saves from the Northampton goalkeeper Oscar Jansson but again Ben Hamer did the same thing and gave Kevin Thornton the equaliser but in extra time Matthew Mills put Reading ahead again only to score an own goal at the end. Reading lost 4-2 on penalties because of Simon Church and Jake Taylor having their shots saved. In the next game Reading won 2-1 over Leicester City with a lob from Gylfi Sigurdsson and a bullet header from Matthew Mills. Leicester had equalised with a long range shot from Lloyd Dyer but Reading scored in the 86th minute to hold Leicester at bay for their first win of the season.

September

On the 11th after the International Break and the sale of Gylfi Sigurdsson Reading beat Crystal Palace 3-0. The first goal was a penalty won and scored by Shane Long after he cut in from the left and was taken out by Paddy McCarthy. The second was also a penalty after Jem Karacan ran the whole pitch with the ball, to pass to Long who cut in again and was taken out by Julian Bennett. New signing Ian Harte took responsibility and scored. The third was in extra time when Brian Howard lofted a pass to Jimmy Kebe who then cut in and fired past Julian Speroni. Next Reading had an away game against in-form Millwall where it ended 0-0 after some brilliant saves by Adam Federici and Millwall keeper David Forde. Next Reading lost 3-1 to Middlesbrough F.C after they went 1-0 down in 24 seconds thanks to Scottish midfielder Barry Robson. Next an ex-Reading player came back to haunt them, Leroy Lita scored to make it 2-0 but a few minutes after Jimmy Kebe got 1 back after he dribbled round two players, passed back to Brian Howard who laid him off. David Wheater capped it off for Middlesbrough F.C with a header past Adam Federici. Just before the full-time whistle Brian Howard was shown a straight red after a tackle on Andy Halliday. Next Reading beat Barnsley F.C. 3-0 with 3 goals in the last 12 minutes. Chris Armstrong made a comeback after 1½ seasons out of action with a knee injury. Jimmy Kebe again put Reading in the lead with a bullet header from substitute Hal Robson-Kanu's cross. Ian Harte then curled a perfect freekick past Luke Steele to make it 2-0. Hal Robson-Kanu capped it off with a 50 yard run and then a cool finish under keeper Luke Steele. On the 61st minute Zurab Khizanishvili was sent off after a tackle that never was on Chris Wood. On Tuesday the 28th, Reading beat Ipswich Town 1-0 after substitute Simon Church came on and after 30 seconds on, he had the ball in the net. Jem Karacan's shot was steered in well by Church and Matthew Mills was sent off for two bookable offences. That makes three Reading sending off's in three games.

October

Reading then travelled to Preston North End and earned a 1-1 draw with the royals going behind in the 1st half with a goal from Preston's Keith Treacy. But in the 55th minute reading drew level through a sensational 25 yard volley by Jem Karacan. Reading then lost at home to Swansea City by a slim margin. Scott Sinclair with Swansea's goal to give ex-manager Brendan Rodgers a happy return. The Tuesday after Reading lost again, this time to Bristol City with a goal from striker Danny Haynes on 28 minutes. The next game Reading beat 'unbeaten at home' Burnley 4-0. The first goal came from a Shane Long penalty which he won after being slipped through by Jay Tabb and was fouled by Leon Cort. The next came from Jobi McAnuff after Ian Harte fired in a freekick and Matthew Mills's shot fell to McAnuff to volley in. Soon after, sub Michail Antonio tapped in Shane Long's cross and other sub Simon Church belted in a shot at a tight angle from a Brian Howard's pass. The next game Reaing won 4-3 after going 3-1 down against Doncaster Rovers. Matthew Mills opened up the scoring early only to have James Hayter eqilise. Shelton Martis then put Doncaster in the lead and 2 minutes after the second half started Dean Shiels made it 3-1. Reading brought on Noel Hunt and Simon Church and Hunt made an immediate impact by crossing in for Jem Karacan to head past Neil Sullivan. Then Ian Harte whipped a supurb freekick into the top corner and to finish off Simon Church belted in sub Michail Antonio's squareball.

March

Reading's next game was a FA Cup Quarter Final match against Manchester City at the City of Manchester Stadium. Reading played well before eventually conceding a 74th minute goal to Micah Richards that turned out to be the only goal of the game, and eliminating Reading from the FA cup. Reading where back playing in the Championship on 19 March away at Barnsley, it was a close game with the winner for the Royals coming in the 71st minute thanks to second half substitute Mathieu Manset.
