In numbers: Reading v Stoke

After the curtain raiser of Stoke City`s fifth consecutive Premier League season at the Madejski, Editor Lloyd Reddin takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the fixture in numbers.

8-The number of minutes Adam Le Fondre was on his feet over the 90 minutes. #unbalanced

2- The number of decisions referee Kevin Friend got correct in the game (and yes one was the penalty) #whistlehappy

1- The number of pounds that Danny Guthrie paid for his haircut. #fightwithalawnmower

33- The number of seconds Glen Whelan takes to pick out a pass. #midfieldengine

3- The number of substitutes Tony Pulis got incorrect. #shrewdtactian

123- The number of attempted dribbles by Michael Kightly #winger

24- The number of miles ran by Jonathan Walters. #marathonman

0- The number of hands Adam Federici seemed to have. #calamity

4- The number of breeze blocks Robert Huth smashed in training this week, down on his normally 13 due to viral meningitis. #berlinwall

100- The amount of feet away the ball goes from Cameron Jerome after his first touch. #touchlikeabrickwall

300- The amount of empty seats in the Reading area #ticketsunsold
