Team news from Madejski StadiumFollowing last weekend’s trip to Nottingham Forest, there are three changes to the Royals starting XI for this evening’s home fixture against Queens Park Rangers.
Paul McShane picked up a facial injury at the City Ground, meaning that Michael Hector captains the side with Anton Ferdinand called in alongside him at centre-half to face his former side.
Alex Fernandez comes in for a start, as does Garath McCleary who missed out last weekend against Nottingham Forest through injury. Hal Robson-Kanu is deemed fit enough for the bench after an absence.
Reading: Al-Habsi, Gunter, Taylor, Hector (c), Ferdinand, Norwood, Williams, Fernandez, McCleary, Vydra, Blackman.
Subs: Bond, Robson-Kanu, Sa, Obita, Hurtado, John, Cooper.
