The Royals have made several changes from their FA Cup match at Stevenage last weekend.
One player keeping his place, though, is young full-back Omar Richards, after impressing at the Lamex Stadium.
Jón Daði Böðvarsson has recovered from illness, and is fit enough for the bench, while Liam Moore returns from a minor knock to start.
Vito Mannone re-takes his place in goal, and Yann Kermorgant is also involved from the start.

Reading: Mannone, Gunter, McShane (c), Moore, Richards, Van den Berg, Evans, Swift, McCleary, Barrow, Kermorgant.
Subs: Jaakkola, Aluko, Bacuna, Ilori, Böðvarsson, Blackett, Kelly.
