📋 Ahead of the game | In-form Latics coming to RG2

25 February 2020

Andy Rinomhota, Michael Olise and George Pușcaș all make way in the starting line-up, but all three are available from the bench on Wednesday night.

Also among the substitutes is Ayub Masika, who was unable to feature over the weekend. The starting line-up sees an unchanged defensive line, though, with Araruna and Pelé set to anchor the midfield for the Royals.

Yakou Méïté scored a memorable last-minute goal against the Latics in the home fixture between the sides last season, and he starts on Wednesday night.


Ejaria returns to the line-up after pulling out of the side at the last minute at Elland Road at the weekend, but he is fit to start at Madejski Stadium against the relegation threatened side.

The visitors come into tonight's match in their best form of the season so far - with just one defeat in six. The test facing the Royals tonight will be a stern one.

Reading: Rafael, Yiadom, Morrison, Moore (c), Richards, Pele, Araruna, Swift, Ejaria, Méïté, Baldock.
Subs: Walker, Rinomhota, Olise, Blackett, Masika, Adam, Pușcaș.

Wigan Athletic: Marshall, Byrne, Kipré, Balogun, Roberts, Morsy (c), Williams, Pearce, Massey, Lowe, Moore. 
Subs: Gyollai, Dunkley, Evans, Jacobs, Pilkington, Mlakar, Garner.
