First leg eleven announced

13 May 2017

Team news ahead of our Craven Cottage clash

The teams are in and Reading have named the eleven who will start the first leg of the Championship Play-off Semi-Final at Craven Cottage.

Liam Kelly misses out on the trip to Fulham with illness, so George Evans comes into the side to start in midfield. Paul McShane starts his second successive game following an injury lay-off to take a place in defence alongside Liam Moore and Tyler Blackett.

Garath McCleary has recovered from a groin problem sufficiently to be named as a substitute, while Lewis Grabban starts alongside Yann Kermorgant in attack.

Former Royals loanee Lucas Piazon starts on the bench for Slavisa Jokanovic's men this evening.

Fulham: Bettinelli, Fredericks, Kalas, Ream, Malone, Johansen, McDonald, Cairney (c), Aluko, Ayite, Martin.
Subs: Button, Odoi, Sessegnon, Kebano, Parker, Cyriac, Piazon.

Reading: Al Habsi, Gunter, Obita, Blackett, Moore, McShane, Evans, Williams, Swift, Grabban, Kermorgant.
Subs: Jaakkola, Van den Berg, Ilori, Beerens, McCleary, Popa, Mendes.
