Match Preview

Leigertwood set to boost Royals Reading could welcome back midfielder Mikele Leigertwood for the visit of Nottingham Forest in the npower Championship. Leigertwood missed the recent victories at Brighton and Southampton with a knee injury sustained in the 2-0 win against Leeds on Good Friday but may return to the Royals' matchday squad against Forest. However, manager Brian McDermott will continue to be without several first-team regulars. Jem Karacan has been sidelined for the remainder of the campaign with a broken ankle, while Matthew Connolly has not regained full fitness following his own ankle problem. Midfielder Jay Tabb required an injection ahead of the win at Southampton on Friday and he will be monitored in the build-up to kick-off at the Madejski Stadium and Hal Robson-Kanu is a doubt after missing the trip to St Mary's because of injury. Back-up goalkeeper Mikkel Andersen remains out of action with a knee knock and Joseph Mills continues his recovery from a quad injury. Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cotterill has hinted at changes for the trip. The game at the Madejski Stadium, that could see Forest secure their Championship survival, will be a fourth in 11 days for Cotterill's side. "We might need to think about freshening things up because we have a third game in a week coming up on Saturday," said the Reds boss. "We might have to look at how to get some energy and zip back into us. "If we win the game, we can be safe. But that is easier said than done. Reading is a tough place to go but we will make sure we are prepared." On-loan defenders George Elokobi, Scott Wootton and Danny Higginbotham, midfielder Jonathan Greening and striker Marcus Tudgay are options for Cotterill, who will check on the fitness of midfielder Guy Moussi. Moussi has missed the last two matches with a calf injury.
