Team News: Akpan & Cox start

16 August 2014

All Academy bench for the Royals

The Royals make two changes from their opening Sky Bet Championship campaign away at Wigan Athletic last week.

For today's home clash with Ipswich Town, Simon Cox and Hope Akpan both start for Reading - who have 12 Academy graduates in the 18-man squad.

The average age of our substitute's bench is just 19.5 - all seven of which came through the Royals youth set-up.

Former Royal Jay Tabb starts for the Tractor Boys at Madejski Stadium.
