Reading have injury concerns over Matej Vydra, Danny Williams and Hal Robson-Kanu for the home game against Burnley.
Striker Vydra and midfielder Williams are carrying hamstring injuries and winger Robson-Kanu is also a fitness doubt.
Latvia forward Deniss Rakels could therefore have more of a part to play having come on for his debut as a late substitute in the goalless draw with Wolves last weekend.
Midfielder Aaron Tshibola is still out with a hamstring injury.
Burnley will again be without midfielder...
