New loan signing, Manchester United's Luke Chadwick, is expected to make his debut in midfield for the Royals after signing for the Royals on Friday. Meanwhile Tyson will be hoping to feature after his superb England U-20 debut during the week which saw him score England's two goals in a 2-1 victory over Germany at the Madejski Stadium. After last week's 5-2 demolition of Burnley everything looks good for the Royals with Steve Sidwell having a superb game at Burnley and scoring two goals. Reading have loads of options in midfield with Salako also returning to form, and Hughes is almost certain to be missing from the starting line-up.
From: Hahnemann, Murty, Williams, Brown, Shorey, Salako, Harper, Mackie, Sidwell, Chadwick, Henderson, Newman, Forster, Cureton, Ashdown, Tyson.

From: Brown, Nosworthy, Leon Johnson, Hope, Edge, James, Hessenthaler, Southall, Perpetuini, Ipoua, Wallace, Tommy Johnson, Sidibe, Bartram, Spiller, Awuah.
