Unchanged squad for visit of WBA

On-loan defender Fredrik Stoor was injured in the challenge that saw Reading striker Shane Long sent off last week but the Swede has trained and is fit.

"It should pretty much be the same 18," said Clough. "Shaun Barker still has a problem with his thigh and hasn't trained this week. It's a small tear and because of the number of games it hasn't had time to heal.

"He's at the stage where he can play without doing too much training in between but because we are playing well at the minute we will try to get along without him for as long as we can.

"Chris Porter is back in training with the rest of the lads but because of the length of time he's been out he's a bit behind in other ways and will need a little bit more time to get up to speed, while we have to be absolutely certain with Steve Davies and Kris Commons because of the amount of times they have broken down in the last few months."

Porter (hip), Davies and Commons (both hamstring), along with Paul Connolly (hip) are pencilled in to play for the reserves next week.
