📯 Team news | Olise starts against the Robins

One change to the side that took a point from The Den in midweek...

28 November 2020

Michael Olise is the only change to the eleven for the Royals this afternoon as Veljko Paunovic's men look to return to winning ways against the Robins.

Olise came off the bench at Millwall and set up the equaliser for Lucas Joao with a lovely flicked pass between the Lions defenders, and he has earned a start today.

Alfa Semedo makes way but is available on the substitutes bench, while Luke Southwood is preferred to Sam Walker as a replacement goalkeeping option.

And Tom McIntyre is again part of the matchday squad today following the conclusion of a precautionary period of monitoring prompted by notification from the Scottish FA of a player who tested positive for the virus whilst on international duty with Tom and the Scotland Under-21 team.

Meanwhile Jayden Onen was named in the first team squad for the first time in midweek and is amongst the substitutes again, despite having only played and scored in an Under-23s win at Middlesbrough yesterday.

Dejan Tetek also played a part in that come from behind win for our Under-23s and he too is in our squad of 20 today. 

On Bristol City's bench is former Royals defender Adrian Mariappa and ex-loanee Chris Martin too.

Reading: Rafael, Holmes, Richards, Moore (c), Morrison, Rinomhota, Laurent, Olise, Meite, Ejaria, Joao.
Subs: Southwood, Esteves, McIntyre, Gibson, Tetek, Semedo, Aluko, Onen, Baldock.

Bristol City: Bentley, Hunt, Dasilva, Nagy, Diedhiou, Paterson, O'Dowda, Semenyo, Moore, Rowe, Vyner.
Subs: O'Leary, Martin, Mariappa, Wells, Edwards, Brunt, Bakinson, Towler, Massengo.
