Former players from Reading FC are extending their seasons as they gear up for the play-offs. While most teams in League One and League Two are enjoying their holidays, eight teams are just beginning the pressure-packed play-off phase. The Championship teams, wrapping up their final matches this weekend, will soon face similar nerves and tension next week.

Although Reading FC is not in the mix this season, there are still notable connections to the Royals in the play-off mix for League One and League Two. Here are three former Reading players to keep an eye on:

1. James Henry – Oxford United:
Henry, a veteran midfielder with over 600 career appearances, had a stint with Reading in the early 2000s. While he struggled to secure a regular spot with Reading due to the club’s competitive standing, he later found success with Millwall and Wolves. Henry brings valuable experience to Oxford United, where he has become a pivotal figure in the team, aiming to guide them back to the second tier.

2. Jon-Dadi Bodvarsson – Bolton Wanderers:
Icelandic forward Bodvarsson joined Reading with hopes of promotion to the Premier League but eventually moved on to Millwall after a modest spell. Now with Bolton Wanderers, Bodvarsson has regained his scoring touch, netting double figures for the first time since his debut season with Reading. His recent brace against Reading demonstrates his potential to lead Bolton to promotion.

3. Liam Kelly – Crawley Town:
Kelly, a product of Reading’s youth system, impressed fans with his skillset before moving to Feyenoord in 2019. After loan spells at Oxford United and a stint at Rochdale, Kelly now finds himself at Crawley Town. He aims to contribute to Crawley’s play-off campaign, hoping for a more successful outcome than his previous experience with Reading in 2017.

As these former Reading players embark on their play-off journeys with their respective clubs, they bring a wealth of experience and talent, aiming to secure promotion and extend their seasons in pursuit of success.
