Reading striker Martin Butler looks set to miss out on Saturday's trip to Port Vale, but the good news is that the player is now back in full training after recovering from his ankle problems. Butler is expected to return to action in the following weeks home tie against Cardiff City at the Madejski Stadium. Butler's absense means Cureton, Forster, Rougier and Henderson are all likely to feature - either in the first eleven or on the bench. Jamie Cureton could make his first start of the season alongside Nicky Forster up front. Meanwhile Port Vale are without two players that may have featured with midfielder Marc Bridge-Wilkinson and defender Liam Burns both sidelined. Bridge-Wilkinson is out with a hamstring problem and Burns picked up an injury during a reserve fixture.
Reading - from: Whitehead, Murty, Whitbread, Robinson, Williams, Parkinson, Hughes, Harper, A Smith, Henderson, Cureton, Rougier, Forster, Igoe, Viveash, Ashdown.
Port Vale - from:
Walsh, Carragher, Ingram, Hardy, Dodd, Brisco, Burton, O'Callaghan, Armstrong,
Brooker, McPhee, Delaney, Gibson.
Reading made the statistics level last season with a double over Port
Vale in the league.
