Juande Ramos may have three players back in the frame for Reading but Darren Bent and Younes Kaboul are both doubtful.

Striker Darren has a knee ligament strain while defender Younes sprained his ankle in the 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa on New Year’s Day.

The good news is that Teemu Tainio (Achilles), Paul Stalteri (groin) and Pascal Chimbonda (stomach bug) have all resumed full training.

Longer-term injuries Gareth Bale (foot), Anthony Gardner (ankle) and Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee) remained sidelined.
