John Swift returns to the squad for the first time since starting in a goalless affair at Stoke City back at the start of February, Veljko Paunovic naming him on the substitutes bench for this evening's encounter.
Omar Richards is one of two changes to the side that started at Vicarage Road last Friday night, returning to the left-back spot with Lewis Gibson dropping to the bench.
Lucas Joao is the other change - our top scorer starts in place of George Puscas up front.
The midfield remains unchanged, with Josh Laurent and Andy Rinomhota in holding positions in the middle and Ovie Ejaria, Michael Olise and Yakou Meite looking to pull the strings in an attacking sense.
Reading: Rafael, Yiadom, Richards, Moore (c), Holmes, Rinomhota, Laurent, Ejaria, Olise, Meite, Joao.
Subs: Southwood, Esteves, Gibson, Tetek, Swift, Semedo, Aluko, Puscas, Baldock.
Cardiff City: Smithies, Flint, Vaulks, Ralls, Moore, Nelson, Pack, Wilson, Sang, Brown, Ng.
Subs: Phillips, Osei-Tutu, Murphy, Williams, Watters, Ojo, Harris, Hoilett, Colwill.
