As we look forward to a local away day at Brentford tomorrow afternoon, we have a quick look at team news for both sides.

The home side haven’t had much luck with right-backs recently – they sold Maxime Colin to Birmingham and Henrik Dalsgaard was injured late at Sheffield Wednesday midweek. Nico Yennaris is likely to have to drop back, despite putting in good performances in central midfield.

The Bees have a few issues in the midfield department too, as influential midfielder Alan Judge and Lewis MacLeod are both a way off yet. Former Royals target Lasse Vibe is still a few weeks ago, which is good news as he always seems to find the net against us!

Key striker Yann Kermorgant is edging closer to a return after surgery this summer, but fellow forward Joseph Mendes has a knee injury keeping him out. Jordan Obita is back in full training now, but is short of match fitness, so is unlikely to make the 18.

Midfielder John Swift is also back in training after a hamstring injury, but is unlikely to feature against his old side. Both Tennai Watson and Callum Harriott are not ready to return, but Liam Kelly has shaken off a knock picked up against Bristol last week.
