The full-back gained 70 valuable match minutes with our Under-23s over the weekend, and is now back in the fray for Reading as they get set to take on West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday evening.

Yiadom's return comes at a useful time for the Royals, with Chris Gunter ruled out after coming off with a groin injury in the weekend's game against Hull City.

After coming on as a substitute at the weekend, Felipe Araruna makes his first start for the Royals against the Baggies on Wednesday, and George Pușcaș will lead the line up front for Reading.

Jordan Obita is fit to start after withdrawing with a hamstring issue midway through the second half on Saturday, and Michael Olise will be among the substitutes against the league leaders.

For the visitors, former Royal, Hal Robson-Kanu starts up front for the Baggies - while goalkeeper, Jonathan Bond is among the subs for West Brom on Wednesday night - who are unchanged from their weekend's win over Millwall.

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

West Bromwich Albion: Johnstone, O'Shea, Ajayi, Bartley, Townsend, Sawyers, Livermore, Robinson, Krovinovic, Pereira, Robson-Kanu.
Subs: Bond, Furlong, Phillips, Grosicki, Austin, Harper, Hegazi.
