Midfielder's one-match banRoyals midfielder Danny Guthrie serves a one-match ban as we take on Huddersfield this weekend.
Guthrie picked up his fifth booking of the season against AFC Bournemouth in our last fixture, so is not available for Nigel Adkins' men this coming Saturday.
Adkins said after the Bournemouth game, "It was a silly booking, it was never a yellow card. We endeavour to pass the ball and Danny has been integral in that. Now he's not available, so it gives an opportunity to somebody like Hope Akpan to come back into the squad."
The Royals currently have Wayne Bridge, Sean Morrison, Chris Baird, Mikele Leigertwood, Jem Karacan and Jason Roberts sidelined, and the boss said recently that Baird is the closest to a return.
