Hillsborough tribute at Reading v Liverpool clash

Reading's Barclays Premier League clash with Liverpool this weekend will be preceded by a minute's silence. The silence is to honour the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.

A statement on the club's website confirmed: "Supporters of Reading Football Club and Liverpool Football Club will hold a minute's silence before Saturday's fixture at Madejski Stadium as a mark of respect for the anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

"With the game falling two days before the 24th anniversary of the tragedy, plans began last week for a fitting tribute to the 96 supporters who lost their lives.

"The Royals contacted Liverpool FC; spoke to the Premier League earlier today and they of course agreed it was absolutely correct to pay respect on such an occasion."
