The international break has finished, with several Royals having been on duty for their countries in the gap in league fixtures.

With the full available squad now back at Hogwood, preparations have been ramping up leading into Saturday's match against Neil Harris and his Millwall side.

Manager Paul Clement has been working the team hard with a full block of training, and they will be hoping to put that work to good use against a Millwall team that sit one point and one place above the Royals in the Championship standings. Click here to read more from the Royals boss.

In terms of team news, the manager confirmed that wingers Garath McCleary and Callum Harriott both trained fully over the international break and will be considered for selection, with goalkeeper Vito Mannone also back fit and available.

Sam Baldock is also nearing a return from injury, but Jón Daði Böðvarsson and John O'Shea are yet to return to training. 

As for Millwall, they will be hoping to continue the form that saw them overturn Aston Villa before the international break - with former Royals, Jake Cooper and Jem Karacan among the squad ranks at The Den this season.

It's going to be another tight match in RG2 on Saturday afternoon, and we need your vocal support once more at Madejski Stadium this weekend!
