Reading will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Championship when they take on Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.
The Royals have tasted back-to-back defeats recently, and will be keen to give themselves breathing space from the relegation zone with a positive result on Saturday.
Mark Bowen has named his starting XI for the game, and there’s certainly some notable exclusions from the matchday squad.

Ovie Ejaria misses out through illness, whilst John Swift is injured for the game against the Latics, which will be a huge blow for the Royals.
George Puscas keeps his place in the starting XI despite a poor run of form in front of goal, and he’ll be keen to find a much-needed goal to boost his confidence heading into the festive period.
Plenty of Reading fans took to social media to react to this latest team news.
