Royals to name unchanged line-up
With Brian Howard not fully recovered from the broken cheekbone he suffered at Barnsley, Kalifa Cisse is expected to continue in midfield alongside Marek Matejovsky. Defender Chris Armstrong is also nearing full fitness after recovering from a knee injury. Shane Long serves the second of a three-game ban after being sent off for violent conduct against Derby and Noel Hunt remains a long-term injury absentee after surgery on his knee. That means Rodgers will look to Grzegorz Rasiak to lead the line as Reading seek to register only their second home win in the last 11 months. Kick-off 8pm.
