Kenya’s Ayub Timbe Masika was in action for Championship club Reading FC as the Mark Bowen led side went down 1-0 in a friendly match against EPL side Chelsea. The game was played behind closed doors at the Cobham training ground in London.

Chelsea got the only goal of the match courtesy of Pedro.

Chelsea loanee Matt Miazga also played the game as was ex-Blues midfielder John Swift.

N’Golo Kante, who returned to contact training on Tuesday, was also among those involved, as were Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour.

Ayub Timbe signed for Reading on a six months’ loan deal from Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe.
