Ahead of the game | Stern Sunderland test awaits

Jón Daði Böðvarsson continues to lead the line up front, with Yann Kermorgant and Chris Martin available from the bench.

Tyler Blackett returns from illness, and is fit enough for a place among the substitutes, while Academy graduate midfielder Andy Rinomhota is available from the bench to possibly make his league debut - having already played in cup fixtures for the Royals this season.

Mo Barrow and Sone Aluko will line up on the flanks for Paul Clement's side against Sunderland on Saturday afternoon, with Dave Edwards set to anchor the midfield in Bacuna's absence.

Reading: Mannone, Gunter (c), Richards, Moore, Ilori, Edwards, Swift, Kelly, Barrow, Aluko, Böðvarsson.
Subs: Jaakkola, Van den Berg, Kermorgant, Clement, Blackett, Martin, Rinomhota.

Sunderland: Camp, Oviedo, Wilson, McNair, Kone, Love, Cattermole, McManaman, McGeady, Honeyman, Fletcher.
Subs: Stryjek, LuaLua, Maja, Robson, Asoro, Clarke-Salter, Ejaria.
