7.45pm kick-off

Following a hard-fought victory in his first match as Reading manager, Paul Clement will be hoping to supplement that with a positive result against promotion chasers Aston Villa on Tuesday night.

The nature of the win on Friday against QPR will buoy the Royals as they head into another tough match, now sitting further clear of the bottom three and a renewed confidence heading into the final seven matches.

Liam Kelly will hope to be involved after missing Friday's game through illness, while Tommy Elphick is ineligible to face his parent club.

Yann Kermorgant will be suspended for the Royals after his red card against QPR, while Jón Daði Böðvarsson may not be match fit to take on Villa.
