Match Preview

Roberts set to miss out for Royals Reading could be without influential striker Jason Roberts for their npower Championship clash with Blackpool. The former Blackburn forward suffered a hamstring injury during the 3-1 defeat at Peterborough on Tuesday, but the injury is not as bad as the Royals first feared and Roberts will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the damage ahead of the visit of the Tangerines. Manager Brian McDermott moved quickly to add cover to his attacking ranks following Roberts' knock with the acquisition of England youth international Benik Afobe on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season, and the youngster could make his debut. Hayden Mullins is expected to continue on the right of defence in the absence of ankle injury victim Matt Connolly, while Joseph Mills continues to miss out. Blackpool are set to be without Roman Bednar for the trip. Bednar came off the bench to score his first goal for the Seasiders in Wednesday night's 3-3 draw with Leicester but hobbled out of the action shortly afterwards. The West Brom loanee underwent a scan on Thursday and boss Ian Holloway is still awaiting the results amid fears Bednar has suffered medial ligament damage. Stephen Dobbie is poised to replace the 28-year-old Czech forward in the matchday squad and make his second Blackpool debut after rejoining on loan from Swansea. Dobbie made 22 appearances for the Bloomfield Road outfit during their previous promotion campaign in 2010, scoring six goals. Craig Cathcart could return to the heart of the defence after Holloway expressed displeasure with the quality of his side's defending against the Foxes. Neal Eardley is a candidate to make way, allowing Alex Baptiste to revert to right-back.
