Team news for Brighton clash
Kebe continues to recover from a hamstring strain, whilst full back Chris Gunter is also a doubt as Brian McDermott’s squad prepare to return to the AMEX Stadium.
Roberts has been affected by a calf problem during pre-season, though the injury is not thought to be serious – and the striker has plenty of time to recover given that he will miss the opening two Barclays Premier League games through suspension.
Jason Roberts will sit out the Royals trip to Brighton on Tuesday evening, whilst Jimmy Kebe will also miss the clash through injury.
Please note tickets are no longer on sale from Madejski Stadium.
This evening’s game is all ticket, with no pay on the gate option - though Reading fans can still purchase tickets directly from Brighton until 5pm today by calling 0844 327 1901.
