Over 2,000 fans set to back Lads at Reading.

Sunderland’s allocation of tickets for the forthcoming trip to the Madejski Stadium is now sold out.

Martin O’Neill’s side face Reading on Saturday 2 February 2013 in a traditional 3pm kick-off.

The  club has sold just over 2,000 tickets for the fixture, which represents a round trip of 600 miles for Sunderland supporters.

Tickets are still on sale for the game, priced from £25 for adults, £19 for 17-22 year olds, £18 for over 65s and £10 for under 16s.
