Kermorgant starts and Ilori returns

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Yann Kermorgant has been handed his first start of the season after recovering from hip and groin surgery in the summer - the Frenchman has been deployed from the bench in the last three fixtures but has now been afforded a start against high-flying Wolves.

Tiago Ilori returns to the starting line-up too - the centre-half picked up a horrible head injury after a clash of heads with fellow defender Liam Moore three weeks ago but is fit to start this afternoon.

Joey van den Berg suffered a head injury of his own in the win over Nottingham Forest and had to sit out of the 4-2 victory at Pride Park a fortnight ago, but he returns to the starting eleven.

Omar Richards made his full league debut in that win over Derby and he retains his place in the squad, while Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has overcome injury to be included in the eighteen.

Reading: Mannone, McShane (c), Gunter, Ilori, Moore, Van den Berg, Bacuna, Swift, Barrow, Beerens, Kermorgant.
Subs: Jaakkola, Blackett, Richards, Clement, Edwards, Aluko, Bodvarsson.

Wolverhampton Wanderers:
Ruddy, Boly, Bennett, Coady, Doherty, Vinagre, Neves, Saiss, Cavaleiro, Jota, Bonatini.
Subs: Norris, N'Diaye, Batth, Costa, Price, Miranda, Enobakhare.
