Match Preview

Pantsil poised for Foxes debut John Pantsil could be in line for his Leicester debut against Reading at the King Power Stadium. The former Fulham full-back has yet to be involved this season. A work permit issue ruled him out of the Championship opener against Coventry while he missed the midweek Carling Cup tie at Rotherham as he was away on international duty with Ghana. Fellow defender Sean St Ledger (Republic of Ireland) and midfielder Andy King (Wales) missed the Millers match for the same reason and will also bolster boss Sven-Goran Eriksson`s squad for the visit of last season`s play-off finalists. However, Japan international Yuki Abe will not report back from international duty until Friday and it could be too late for him to be involved. Lee Peltier, scorer of the winning goal against Midlands rivals Coventry, remains sidelined by the groin injury he sustained at the Ricoh Arena while striker Darius Vassell will serve the second game of a three-match ban for his red card against the Sky Blues. Reading's Mathieu Manset could fill the void left by Shane Long's departure. Republic of Ireland international Long joined Premier League side West Brom for an undisclosed fee earlier this week after firing 23 goals in 47 starts last season. Manset looks primed to start against the Foxes after coming off the bench to score two late goals to salvage a point in the Royals' league opener against Millwall. Reading will be without injured trio Shaun Cummings, Marcus Williams and Simon Church. Jay Tabb was due to serve the second game of his suspension against Charlton in the Carling Cup but will miss the trip to the King Power Stadium due to that tie's postponement. Ian Harte and Andy Griffin have minor knocks but both are hopeful of starting.

Match Report

Noel puts Reading in the Hunt Leicester's first npower Championship game at the newly-named King Power Stadium ended in defeat as Reading began life without Shane Long in the best possible fashion. Following the departure of the prolific Long to West Brom this week, more responsibility for goals rested on the shoulders of his Republic of Ireland international Noel Hunt and the Waterford man responded with the opener after 64 minutes. The Royals wrapped up all three points in the final minute through substitute Hal Robson-Kanu. Teenage striker Jeff Schlupp was rewarded for his Carling Cup hat-trick in midweek with a league debut for Leicester. The Ghanaian-born Germany Under-19 international, along with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and defenders Matt Mills and Paul Konchesky, was one of four survivors from the team that defeated Rotherham on Tuesday night as manager Sven-Goran Eriksson again made wholesale changes. Former Fulham full-back John Pantsil was also handed his Foxes debut. Reading's Carling Cup tie at Charlton was postponed due to the riots in London, so Royals boss Brian McDermott named largely the same side that began the season against Millwall last weekend. The only change saw Mathieu Manset replace Long. The visitors dominated a first half of few chances. They should have taken the lead in the 28th minute but Alex Pearce somehow headed over from close range from Ian Harte`s inswinging corner. Before that, Manset broke clear on goal and shot narrowly wide from the edge of the box when perhaps a better option would have been to tee-up the arriving Hunt. David Nugent had a couple of efforts for Leicester early on and late in the first half but neither worried Adam Federici in the Reading goal. Eriksson`s men returned for the second half a different side. Nugent clipped the outside of the post with a curling shot from the left side of the area and Federici had to help a thunderous 20-yard shot from Andy King over the crossbar. At the other end, Schmeichel saved from Jimmy Kebe with his feet. Nugent continued to look lively and shot wide once more from the edge of the box. Despite Leicester`s improvement, Reading took the lead through Hunt`s superb glancing header at the near post from Harte`s driven corner. Kebe came close to making it 2-0 soon afterwards following a mazy run down the right but he shot just wide. Sol Bamba, a reported target for Blackburn, had a chance to equalise but the big defender could not direct his header on target. Reading sealed their first victory of the season in the 90th minute with a stylish move down the right that culminated in Kebe setting up Robson-Kanu, who drove the ball into the top corner from 12 yards.
