KICK off: 6 November 17:00
Team news: Lee Bowyer is set to hand a league debut to Marcel Oakley at right wing-back, with Maxime Colin and Jordan Graham out injured. Graham was forced off in the midweek win over Bristol City, as was centre-back Dion Sanderson and the Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee will be assessed ahead of the game. Kristian Pedersen is sidelined with a hamstring problem, while it has been confirmed that Tahith Chong has returned to Manchester United for his recovery from groin surgery. Reading will remain without Andy Yiadom who is isolating due to Covid-19, but could have Danny Drinkwater back available after he missed the Millwall defeat with a soft tissue injury. There is also hope that former Birmingham midfielder Alen Halilovic could be fit enough to return, with the Croatian having not featured since the end of September. Captain Liam Moore appeared to suffer a leg injury in the closing stages at The Den on Tuesday, making him a doubt for the trip to St. Andrew’s.
