The injury list continues to hit the Royals hard as we go into a Boxing Day fixture against Luton Town this afternoon without captain Liam Moore.

Tom McIntyre steps into the back line alongside captain Michael Morrison - the Academy graduate making only his second league start of the season.

Better news comes in the form of a return to the squad for John Swift - he is named on the substitutes bench this afternoon after a long injury absence.

Again ten Academy graduates are included in the squad of 20 today.

Reading: Rafael, Holmes, Esteves, McIntyre, Morrison (c), Rinomhota, Laurent, Semedo, Aluko, Ejaria, Baldock.
Subs: Southwood, Bristow, Watson, Dorsett, East, Onen, Melvin-Lambert, Olise, Swift.

Luton Town: Shea, Cranie, Potts, Bradley (c), Berry, Moncur, Lockyer, Rea, Mpanzu, Clark, Collins.
Subs: Tunnicliffe, Pearson, Cornick, Hylton, Sluga, Dewsbury-Hall, Norrington-Davies, LuaLua, Nombe.
