Mark Bowen's side will be raring to get going again after an unforeseen postponement against Nottingham Forest last weekend, with Millwall the visitors to Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Sam Baldock and George Pușcaș start together again to lead the line, after both strikers got on the scoresheet last time out at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The midfield is also unchanged, with Andy Rinomhota, John Swift and Ovie Ejaria set to contest the middle of the RG2 turf against Rowett's men this afternoon.

After recovering from an injury, Yakou Méïté is among the substitutes for the Royals, with Garath McCleary and Danny Loader available to make an impact - with Loader keeping up his match practice with a hat-trick for our Under-23s at the start of the week.

For Millwall, three former Royals are among their squad as Gary Rowett takes charge of his second game as Lions manager.

Academy graduate, Jake Cooper starts at the heart of defence, while former Royals Player of the Season, Alex Pearce and popular striker, Jón Daði Böðvarsson are among the substitutes for the visitors.
