As we look forward to tonight`s league game at Millwall, we take a look at team news for both sides at the New Den.

Millwall are looking very healthy on the injury front, with striker Tom Elliot the only injured player with a quad issue. They will also be without forward Lee Gregory who serves the last game of his suspension, as Neil Harris is expected to name an unchanged XI from Preston.

Reading will give a late fitness test to Leondro Bacuna who missed the draw with Hull on Saturday because of injury, which he is expected to pass and be named on the bench. Jordan Obita left the field on a stretcher on Saturday, so is highly doubtful to play any part tonight.

Striker Yann Kermorgant is a couple of weeks away from returning, while fellow Frenchman Joseph Mendes is still on the treatment table. Jon Dadi Bodvarsson is expected to start after his equaliser against Hull, while Modou Barrow remains a doubt for Stam’s men.

Predicted Reading XI – 5-3-2: Mannone; Gunter, Moore, Illori, McShane, Blackett; Van den Berg, Kelly, Swift; Aluko, Bodvarsson.
