Reading meanwhile will be full of confidence going into the game after beating Bolton 7-1 last time out, their second successive win.

Derby County beat Brighton 1-0 last time out to avoid a third successive defeat and they will hope to put the pressure on third place Burnley will they take on inconsistent Blackburn.
