Match Preview

Kebe out for Royals Reading winger Jimmy Kebe will not be fit to face Watford at the Madejski Stadium. The winger this week resumed training after a summer groin injury but is still some way from returning to action. Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood is still out recovering from ankle surgery and striker Jason Roberts remains sidelined by a hip problem. But boss Nigel Adkins has no new injury worries following last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Bolton and all his international players have returned in one piece. Watford bossGianfranco Zola will be hard pushed to make any changes. Zola, who boasts no new injury or suspension concerns, watched his side maul Bournemouth 6-1 at Vicarage Road last weekend, Troy Deeney claiming the club's first hat-trick since 2003. Centre-back Essaid Belkalem arrived this week on a season-long loan deal from Granada but has been on international duty with Algeria so is unlikely to feature. Long-term absentees Nyron Nosworthy (Achilles) and Tommie Hoban (ankle) remain unavailable.
