📰 Team news | One change as Obita makes starting XI

Your Royals side to face the Terriers

7 July 2020

After the weekend’s 5-0 win against Luton Town, Mark Bowen opts to make just a single change for our home game against Huddersfield – Jordan Obita comes into the XI, replacing Ovie Ejaria who misses out with an ankle injury.

Ejaria sustained an ankle knock in the 5-0 win at Luton last weekend and Obita is likely to take a berth on the left flank, with Saturday’s four-goal hero Yakou Méïté on the other side and George Pușcaș leading the line.

It also means a retained place for both Tom McIntyre and Gabriel Osho in defence for Reading – the Academy graduate duo looking to keep another clean sheet this evening.

On the bench, Charlie Adam returns to the squad.

Reading: Rafael, Osho, Blackett, Morrison, McIntyre, Rinomhota, Pelé, Swift (c), Méïté, Obita, Pușcaș.
Subs: Walker, Gunter, Moore, Baldock, McCleary, Boyé, Olise, Adam, Richards.

Huddersfield Town: Lossl, Toffolo, Hogg, Chalobah, Willock, Grant, Mounie, Schindler (c), Stankovic, King, Smith-Rowe.
Subs: Coleman, Kachunga, Stearman, Pritchard, Quaner, Pyke, Brown, Duhaney, O’Brien.
