It's a trip to London this afternoon and Veljko Paunovic has had to shuffle his pack for the clash against QPR.
In total, the Royals boss has made four changes from the side that lost at home to Birmingham City - the most notable absentees being Yakou Meite and Lucas Joao who suffered problems towards the end of the 2-1 defeat on Wednesday night.
Sam Baldock will lead the line in Joao's place, while Alfa Semedo is in the starting eleven for Meite.
The substitutes bench has a very youthful feel, with Nahum Melvin-Lambert coming into the squad fresh from scoring in our FA Youth Cup tie against Aston Villa last night.
Seven of the nine substitutes are Academy graduates in fact, with the other two - Jayden Onen and Lewis Gibson aged 19 and 20 respectively. And there is a Reading Academy graduate in Rangers' side too as Rob Dickie starts in the hosts' back line.
QPR: Dieng, Kakay, Dickie, Barbet, Hamalainen, Cameron, Carroll, Osayi-Samuel, Chair, Willock, Dykes.
Subs: Kelly, Kane, Masterson, Ball, Bettache, Adomah, Thomas, Bonne, Kelman.
Reading: Rafael, Esteves, Richards, Moore (c), Morrison, Rinomhota, Laurent, Semedo, Aluko, Ejaria, Baldock.
Subs: Southwood, Holmes, McIntyre, Gibson, Watson, Olise, Onen, Melvin-Lambert.
