Pic Special: Newcastle U21s 0 Reading U21s 3

A Magpies second-string including new signing Massadio Haidara and first-team players Romain Amalfitano, James Tavernier and Shane Ferguson suffered a disappointing defeat to Reading in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League on Wednesday.

Haidara was playing his first game for the club but a strong wind at the Magpies' training ground made life difficult for everyone and the Royals took a 20th minute lead through Jordan Obita.

He then scored again after Jak Alnwick was shown a straight red card for handling outside his area, before Craig Tanner added a third on the stroke of half-time.

Young substitute Jamie Sterry was then sent off late on as United ended the game with nine men, and Club Photographer Ian Horrocks braved the elements to bring nufc.co.uk this exclusive gallery.
