THE Reading FC team bus was involved in a traffic accident after their defeat at Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Royals' day turned from bad to worse when it appeared the official team coach was pranged from the rear by a silver car as it began its journey back from Portman Road.

Jaap Stam's men had crashed to a 2-0 defeat that afternoon when goals from Callum Connolly and Joe Garner ended Reading's five-match unbeaten run.

And their trip home was then delayed when, according to eye witnesses, a car hit the back of the team coach as it made its way out of the town.

Nobody is thought to have been injured in the incident.
