No new worries for Brighton
Brighton have no fresh injury concerns for Reading's visit to the Amex Stadium.
Gaetan Bong will miss out again as he continues to recover from a knee injury and Liam Rosenior remains sidelined after an ankle problem.
But the defensive duo are edging closer to returning to boost the Seagulls' promotion bid for the run-in.
Reserve goalkeeper Niki Maenpaa is still out with a shoulder injury so Christian Walton continues on the bench as cover for David Stockdale.
Reading manager Jaap Stam also has no new injury worries.
Joey van den Berg remains a doubt after missing Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield due to an ongoing hamstring problem.
Stephen Quinn (knee) continues to build his fitness but Deniss Rakels (ankle) and Callum Harriott (hamstring) remain on the sidelines.
The Royals are currently fourth in the league table.
