Fans at the game between Reading and Leeds United will show their support for academy manager Eamonn Dolan in the 21st minute of the match on Sunday.

Dolan is currently undergoing a course of chemotherapy, after he had a tumour in his bladder removed.

Supporters have chosen the 21st minute to show their support for Dolan after fan site The Tilehurst End ran a campaign to recognise his long-term work with the club’s under-21 side.
Dolan has been with Reading since 2004, acting as caretaker manager of the first-team for one match in 2013.
