Team news - Reading vs Cardiff

It's going to be a chilly Monday night game under the floodlights at the Madejski tonight, we take a look at team news as we welcome high-flying Cardiff City.

Jaap Stam is highly likely to name an unchanged team, as we are enjoying a good spell with a consistent team. The only alternation on the subs bench could be in the inclusion of John Swift, after missing the previous four matches with injury, but Sam Smith is still out injured.

Winger Garath McCleary could also be back in contention soon after returning to training, but is unlikely to be in the squad for a few weeks yet. Jordan Obita remains the only long-term absentee, while Callum Harriott and Joseph Mendes remain sidelined for a while.

Our mate Colin has a few injury concerns to contend with, mainly up top. Hot prospect Rhys Healey is missing, while impressive forward Kenneth Zohore is edging closer to fitness but won't start. Former Royals target Omar Bogle is likely to start after scoring off the bench last week.

Back-up goalkeeper Lee Camp is still sidelined for the Bluebirds, while pacey winger Kadeem Harris is also missing for the away side. Icelandic international Aron Gunnarsson is back in training after an injury lay-off, but is only likely to make the subs bench tonight.
