Reading FC will be looking to climb out of the Championship relegation zone when they take on Coventry City at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.
The Royals squandered the chance to move five points clear of the last three on Wednesday night after suffering a 2-1 loss to Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
At the start of their meeting with the Sky Blues, Veljko Paunovic could welcome back two of his players after long absences.
Defender Tom McIntyre hasn’t played since August with a foot injury, while forward Yakou Meite hasn’t played since early last summer.
Both have been in action for Reading Under-23s recently and could return to the squad this weekend.
Felipe Araruna, Scott Dann and Alen Halilovic are among the other players currently ruled out due to injury.
Here is the full Royals squad for this afternoon’s game.
