Match Preview

Schneiderlin out for Saints Leaders Southampton will still be without Morgan Schneiderlin for the visit of second-placed Reading. The French midfielder suffered a knee injury during the 2-2 weekend derby draw with Portsmouth which ruled him out of Monday's win at Crystal Palace. Tadanari Lee remains on the sidelines with an ankle problem and fellow striker David Connolly is still short of fitness. But Saints have no new injury concerns as they bid to take a huge stride towards promotion and the Championship title. Rickie Lambert showed no signs of his recent groin injury when he took his season's tally to 30 with both goals in the 2-0 win at Selhurst Park, so he will start in attack again. Fit-again defenders Dan Seabourne (head) and Radhi Jaidi (knee) are pushing to be involved. Reading will be without midfielder Jem Karacan for the top-of-the-table clash. Karacan sustained a broken ankle in the recent 2-0 win against Leeds, ruling the Turk out for the remainder of the campaign. Fellow midfielder Jay Tabb continues to struggle with a rib injury while Mikele Leigertwood is also a doubt. Tomasz Cwyka and Hayden Mullins filled in in the centre of midfield for the Royals in the 1-0 win at Brighton on Tuesday and the pair are likely to step in once again at St Mary's. Joseph Mills is working his way back to full fitness following a quad problem and will not play a part, while right-back Matthew Connolly continues to miss out with his ankle injury.
