The Royals make two changes from their starting line-up ahead of Saturday evening's clash against Norwich City.
Midfielders Liam Kelly and Leandro Bacuna return to the starting XI, with Tiago Ilori and midweek goalscorer Dave Edwards among the substitutes.
Winger Mo Barrow makes a return to the squad for the first time since we played Bristol City at home three weeks ago, and he is on the bench for Saturday's game.
Fresh from signing a contract extension with the club, Joey van den Berg continues in the starting line-up on Saturday evening.
Academy graduate Omar Richards made his debut against QPR in the first game of the season, and the young left-back is back among the substitutes at Madejski Stadium.
Reading: Mannone, Gunter, McShane (c), Moore, Blackett, Van den Berg, Bacuna, Kelly, Beerens, Aluko, McCleary.
Subs: Jaakkola, Edwards, Barrow, Ilori, Clement, Böðvarsson, Richards.
