Team news | Oliveira returns, Gunter starts

One change from late draw at Norwich

13 April 2019

Nélson Oliveira returns to the Reading line-up as the Royals get set to take on Brentford, in the only change from a midweek draw at Norwich.

The striker was ineligible to face his parent club on Wednesday night, but comes straight back into the team to take on the bees.

Chris Gunter keeps his place in the side after an impressive showing at Carrow Road, with Reading looking set to revert back to a four-man defence at Madejski Stadium and Tyler Blackett taking a place on the bench.

Academy graduate and boyhood Reading supporter, Tom McIntyre is among the substitutes for the Royals, and could add to his senior debut from Rotherham in December by playing his first home minutes this afternoon.

Reading: Martínez, Gunter, Yiadom, Moore (c), Miazga, Baker, Rinomhota, Ejaria, Barrow, Méïté, Oliveira.
Subs: Walker, Baldock, McCleary, Harriott, Blackett, Barrett, McIntyre.

Brentford: Daniels, Odubajo, Dalsgaard, Konsa, Sorensen, Jeanvier, Da Silva, Sawyers, Benrahma, Watkins, Maupay.
Subs: Balcombe, Canos, Marcondes, Ogbene, Field, Forss, Oksanen.
