16 April 2017 12:34

Reading boss Jaap Stam set to stick with winning line-up

Reading boss Jaap Stam may retain the same line-up that won 3-1 at Aston Villa as they look to consolidate their Sky Bet Championship play-off position.

Jordan Obita returned to the starting XI after recovering from a leg problem while striker Joseph Mendes scored twice on his first league start of the season.

Defender Tiago Ilori was an unused substitute on his return from a knee injury and could earn a recall to the team if Stam decides to make some changes.

Danzell Gravenberch has an ankle injury and remains a doubt while Paul McShane (calf), Joey van den Berg (hamstring) and Deniss Rakels (ankle) are all out.

Rotherham travel to Berkshire aiming for their first point on the road since October.

They will monitor winger Anthony Forde, who missed Good Friday's draw with Birmingham due to an ankle injury, while goalkeeper Lewis Price is struggling with tonsillitis.

Midfielder Tom Adeyemi could come into the starting XI after a spell out of the side through injury.

Lee Frecklington's season is over due to a knee injury and he joins Kirk Broadfoot and Lee Camp in the treatment room.
