Team news: Gorkss starts

9 November 2013

Sharp on the bench but Bridge out

Nigel Adkins makes just one change to last week's starting eleven, bringing in former QPR man Kaspars Gorkss at the back in place of Alex Pearce who drops to the bench.

Loan striker Billy Sharp makes his return to the squad after a groin injury, taking a place on the substitutes' bench alongside Adam Le Fondre as Hal Robson-Kanu starts up front with Pavel Pogrebnyak.

Wayne Bridge has had a knee operation and will be sidelined for a number of weeks as a result, so Stephen Kelly will continue on the left side of defence.

Reading: McCarthy, Kelly, Gunter, Gorkss, Morrison (c), Baird, Guthrie, McCleary, Obita, Robson-Kanu, Pogrebnyak
Subs: Federici, Cummings, Pearce, Akpan, McAnuff, Sharp, Le Fondre.

QPR: Green, Simpson, Assou-Ekotto, Dunne, Hill (c), Jenas, Barton, O'Neil, Phillips, Hoilett, Austin 
Subs: Chevanton, Traore, Onuoha, Henry, Murphy, Kranjcar, Johnson.
