During the 1992–93 English football season, Reading F.C. competed in the Football League Second Division. In 1991, following the breakaway of the 22 First Division clubs to form the Premier League, the Football League divisions were renamed. As a result of the re-branding, the Third Division was renamed the Second Division.[1] Reading went on to finish 8th in the league, missing out on the play-offs by 3 points, reached the Third round of the FA Cup and the Second round of both the League Cup and League Trophy.
