Bridge back for Royals
Wayne Bridge returns to the Reading squad for Sunday's visit of his former club Brighton.
The ex-England left-back missed the 1-0 win at Yeovil a fortnight ago with a knee injury but resumed training on Wednesday.
Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and striker Jason Roberts (hip) were also back on the training field this week after long-term injuries but are still some way from returning to the first team.
Full-back Stephen Kelly is available again after missing out at Yeovil to attend the birth of his son, while Jobi McAnuff, Shaun Cummings, Garath McCleary, Chris Gunter, Hal Robson-Kanu and Kaspars Gorkss will be checked over having been on international duty this week.
Winger Craig Conway comes into contention for his Brighton debut having arrived on a three-month loan deal from Cardiff.
Right-back Bruno returns to the Seagulls' squad for the clash having recovered from a hamstring injury suffered at Leeds on the opening day of the season.
Andrea Orlandi (knee) and Keith Andrews (hamstring) are also back to fitness having been restricted to substitute appearances against Millwall a fortnight ago but fellow midfielder Liam Bridcutt (hernia) is unlikely to be risked.
Strikers Ashley Barnes (hip), Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) remain on the sidelines.
