Zimbabwe Warriors target, Andrew Farai Rinomhota made a huge stride into his budding career after making his first professional English Football League Championship appearance for Reading in their 2-3 away win to Preston North End over the weekend.

The 20-year-old English-born midfielder who was initially included in Sunday Chidzambga's provisional squad for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo but withdrew after denied a Zimbabwean passport by the Home affairs Office, made his professional Championship league debut in a cameo appearance for Reading after coming on in the 90th minutes for Liam Kelly in the team's 2-3 win away to Preston North End on Saturday.

Rinomhota who was born to an English mother and a Zimbabwean father joined the Reading academy from AFC Portchester in 2015 and penned a two-year deal with the option of a further twelve-month extension.

He went on to impress in both the U18s and U21s sides and made his mark within the U23s last season when he made 39 appearances in all competitions attracting the eye of manager former Manchester United defender Jaap Stam who later included the talented box to box midfielder in the first-team squad's pre-season camp in the Netherlands.

The youngster who made his professional debut in August 2017 in the 2–0 EFL Cup win over Gillingham, playing the full ninety minutes, was on the bench in the team's opening league match of the season, a defeat against QPR at Loftus Road.

Rinomhota signed a new contract at Reading in December 2017, that will see the youngster at the club until the summer of 2021.
