Missing Players and team news:
Xisco could keep faith with the side which earned a draw at Middlesbrough, resisting the temptation to bring in fresh legs. Dan Gosling and Andre Gray are options should changes be made in midfield and attack, while Isaac Success is an alternative to Ken Sema on the flank. Having netted as a substitute against Derby, top goalscorer Lucas Joao is expected to be recalled to the Reading XI. Lewis Gibson could return to the side at left-back, but Michael Morrison is out with a hamstring injury. Alfa Semedo may get the nod over Ovie Ejaria or Yakou Meite.
