MatchPreviewTEAMNEWS

Millwall: The Royals could come up against a familiar face in Shaun Cummings tonight. The defender joined Millwall from the Royals earlier this month and made his debut in the Lions’ 3-1 defeat to Ipswich 10 days ago. Centre-back Jos Hooiveld joined on loan from Southampton yesterday and is eligible for selection. Scott McDonald departed Millwall last week after agreeing to terminate his contract.

Reading: Steve Clarke said after Saturday’s win over Cardiff City that Chris Gunter would be a doubt for tonight’s game. The full-back injured his ankle in the first half of the weekend victory, so Stephen Kelly could come into the side. Danny Guthrie (groin) and Jamie Mackie are both doubts for the clash, while Anton Ferdinand and Hope Akpan continue to recover their recovery processes.

MatchPreviewPREMATCHTALK 

Millwall manager Ian Holloway: “Steve Clarke is a very experienced manager and I’m sure that given time he’ll get Reading playing the way he wants to. At the moment, he is still quite new in assessing the group and seeing what he can do. Having the weekend off was of benefit of us, because it allowed us to work some new faces into our team.”

Royals manager Steve Clarke: “It's a crucial game for everyone at the club, you can't shy away from that, you must be honest. We have to take the momentum from Cardiff into that one. We had a little unbeaten run going into Fulham, we lost there but I asked the players to pick up again quickly, which they did.”
