21-y/o in: The side that Reading fans surely want to see against Fulham tomorrow

Reading take on Fulham at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday and Jose Gomes will be hoping his side can get their first victory in over a month.

The Royals will have been given a confidence boost heading into the fixture after scoring a late equaliser against a strong Swansea outfit.

The goal came through an unlikely source in Andy Yiadom, and Gomes will be hoping that it was a turning point after a wretched run of games.

Tyler Blackett was forced off injured, whilst Lucas Boye went off at half-time after a lively start to the fixture.

Both will be unlikely to start on Tuesday, with the substitutes playing a pivotal part of the Royals’ draw on Saturday.

Here’s the side that the Royals supporters would surely like to see against Fulham on Tuesday night…

The team that Gomes should put out is how the Royals lined up at the start of the second-half in their fixture at Swansea.

Reading started that game in a 5-3-2 formation but soon switched to four at the back after Blackett picked up an injury that he failed to shake off. Lucas Joao replaced the defender, much to the surprise of the supporters and even the players themselves, but it seemed to work in offering the Royals more of a threat in the second-half.

Josh Barrett was another who impressed at the Liberty Stadium after coming on at half-time and he looked very dangerous coming in from the left, and was able to cause the Swansea defenders problems with his direct running.

The Royals’ midfield picks itself with the creative John Swift and Ovie Ejaria taking the ranks after being sensational so far this season.

The two strikers up top will be hoping to find their goalscoring boots again, after hitting a blank patch in recent times. George Puscas missed a great chance at Swansea in the first-half and is becoming a frustrated figure at the top end of the pitch.

Saturday’s goalscorer Yiadom will definitely keep his place in the side and play in the right-back position and hope that he can contribute to some more goals for the Royals.

So, just the two changes for the Royals as they look to hit some form after earning a good point at Swansea on Saturday.
