TImbe impresses on his home debut for Reading
Kenyan international Ayub Timbe is yet to cement his place at English Championship side Reading but is slowly gaining the trust of the management.
The speedy winger made his third appearance for the club on Saturday, coming in for Michael Olise in the 71st minute as they edged relegation-threatened Barnsley 2-0 at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday.

Despite being on the pitch for less than 20 minutes Timbe put on a good show that caught the eyes of many.

Short cameo from Timbe yesterday but a very promising one.
