Lowry banned for Lions

Shane Lowry misses Millwall's home clash with Reading through suspension but Jermaine Easter returns.

Defender Lowry is banned after he was sent off towards the end of Tuesday night's 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday but striker Easter can be added to the squad after completing a three-match suspension.

First-choice goalkeeper David Forde remains sidelined with a thigh problem so Stephen Bywater continues between the posts, while midfielder Richard Chaplow is out with a calf injury.

DJ Campbell could make his full debut after climbing off the bench to hit the equaliser against the Owls.

Reading boss Nigel Adkins could name an unchanged starting line-up.

The Royals thumped Blackpool 5-1 in midweek to take their tally in their last two home matches to 12 goals.

Hal Robson-Kanu returned from six weeks out with a calf injury as a substitute and scored the fifth goal so he should be involved again.

Fellow midfielder Danny Guthrie could also be on the bench if he can shake off a calf problem but Adkins still has an extensive injury list with Wayne Bridge, Sean Morrison (both knee), Mikele Leigertwood (ankle), Jason Roberts (hip) and Jem Karacan (cruciate) unavailable.
