Reading host Nottingham Forest in the Championship tomorrow.
Mark Bowen’s Royals are in some fine form – winning their last four in the league and unbeaten in their last seven in all competitions.
They started the New Year with a fine 2-1 win away at Fulham, with goals from John Swift and Charlie Adam taking them up to 14th in the table – six points off Swansea in 6th, and eight behind Forest in 5th.
Reading’s last outing ended in a disappointing 2-2 draw with Blackpool in the FA Cup Third Round last weekend, but it gave Bowen a chance to rest some key players, and they’ll be fresh ahead of the Forest fixture tomorrow.
Two players look likely to miss tomorrow for Reading; George Puscas and Andy Yiadom.
Yiadom has missed the last seven for Reading with a knee injury. He sustained the injury last month and was ruled out for six to seven weeks, and should be back out on the pitch before the end of the month.
Puscas has missed the last six with a shoulder injury picked up in the 1-1 draw at Barnsley last month – he’s not required surgery, and should also be available again before the end of the month.

Reading also saw Matt Miazga complete a full 90-minutes against Blackpool – the American had missed much of December through injury but is back and readily available.
A win tomorrow could see Reading into the top-half of the Championship table depending on other results, and would extend their winning-streak to five in the league.
