Following the weekend’s trip to Pride Park, there are three changes to the Royals’ starting XI for the team to face Brentford at Madejski Stadium.
The start of a suspension for Matt Miazga means that Michael Morrison is drafted back in at centre-half, while Jordan Obita is given the left-back berth in the absence of Omar Richards.
The final change is in the centre-forward role, where Sam Baldock makes his first start since the restart, with George Pușcaș taking a place amongst the subs. Tom McIntyre is also included in the squad once again in a substitute role.
Brentford line up strongly and former Royal Tariqe Fosu is on the substitutes' bench back at the Madejski.
Reading: Rafael, Gunter, Obita, Moore (c), Morrison, Rinomhota, Swift, Ejaria, Meite, Olise, Baldock.
Subs: Walker, McCleary, McIntyre, Blackett, Masika, Adam, Pelé, Osho, Puscas.
Brentford: Raya, Henry, Pinnock, Norgaard, Benrahma, Watkins, Dasilva, Emiliano, Jansson (c), Mbeumo, Dalsgaard.
Subs: Daniels, Mokotjo, Dervisoglu, Jeanvier, Fosu, Baptiste, Valencia, Zamburek, Roerslev.
