Moore rejoins the XI for Boro clash

14 July 2020

After a win away at Charlton Athletic on Saturday, manager Mark Bowen makes just a single change to the starting XI for our meeting with Middlesbrough.

Club captain Liam Moore makes a return to the side, replacing midfielder Pelé – who misses out on the squad completely, after being taken off as a precaution against the Addicks.

On the bench, Kenyan winger Ayub Masika returns to selection – the squad otherwise unchanged from the weekend.

Neil Warnock has made four changes to his side following defeat at home to Bristol City at the weekend. Aynsley Pears comes in as goalkeeper, Anfernee Dijksteel and Marcus Tavernier start, while Partick Roberts is also given a place in the Boro eleven.

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

Middlesbrough: Pears, Saville, Dijksteel, Tavernier, Fry, Roberts, Friend (c), Spence, Johnson, Fletcher, Howson.
Subs: Stojanovic, Clayton, Assombalonga, McNair, Nmecha, Wood, Wing, Coulson.
