Murray starts up frontNigel Adkins has made one change for the visit of Blackpool, Glenn Murray returning from injury to start in attack as Nick Blackman drops to the bench.
Hal Robson-Kanu looks set to start in midfield, with Jamie Mackie on the opposite flank and Hope Akpan pairing Oliver Norwood in the middle again.
Anton Ferdinand, Danny Guthrie, Danny Williams and Garath McCleary all played a 45 minute training game at Hogwood Park on Thursday and club captain Jem Karacan also stepped up his recovery as he joined in parts of the session - giving a real boost to the Royals squad, but it is of course too early for them to be included in the first team fray.
Reading: Federici, Gunter (c), Obita, Hector, Pearce, Norwood, Akpan, Robson-Kanu, Mackie, Cox, Murray.
Subs: Andersen, S Kelly, Cooper, Kuhl, Taylor, Blackman, Pogrebnyak.
Blackpool: Lewis, Daniels, Clarke, Rentmeister, Perkins, Orlandi, Lundstram, Zoko, Delfouneso, E Oriol, Miller
