Team news and predicted XIs - Reading vs Fulham

As we look forward to a massive game tomorrow night against Fulham at the Mad Stad, we take a look the team news and possible starting XIs for both sides.

The biggest blow for the Royals will be the absence of skipper Paul McShane, who was shown a straight red in the first leg, and it will not be appealed. Another defensive concern is Jordan Obita, who left the ground on Saturday night with a protective boot on, following an ankle injury he picked up late on.

This could mean a reshuffle for Jaap Stam, who could revert to four at the back with Ilori back to fitness and Garath McCleary now available to start, after being rested on Saturday after his recent groin issue. Young midfielder Liam Kelly could also be back, after missing the previous game with illness.

Fulham are looking very healthy on the injury front, with no new injury concerns or suspension issue. Jokanovic is expected to ring a few changes, with the likes of Kebano and Sessegnon pushing for a start. Former Royals loanee Lucas Piazon could also get a look in, as they will push for a win.

Predicted Reading XI - 4-3-3: Al-Habsi; Gunter, Moore, Ilori, Blackett; Kelly, Williams, Swift; McCleary, Kermorgant, Beerens.

Predicted Fulham XI - 4-2-3-1: Bettinelli; Fredericks, Kalas, Ream, Malone; McDonald, Cairney; Aluko, Kebano, Sessegnon; Martin.
