Blackburn Rovers will welcome league leaders Reading to Ewood Park on Tuesday high on confidence after their 4-0 win against Coventry City.
Adam Armstrong added a brace to his already healthy Championship goal tally against the Sky Blues, while Ben Brereton and Liverpool loanee Harvey Elliott also found the net.
The Royals will likely be a much tougher test for Tony Mowbray’s side, however, and they sit top of the Championship with six wins and one draw from their opening seven games.
It appears Mowbray could be without his first-choice shot-stopper for Reading’s visit as Thomas Kaminski is carrying a minor groin injury.
In an interview on the club website, the Rovers boss suggested it would be touch and go whether the Belgian is fit enough and added today’s training session will inform his decision.
Are these 10 facts about Ewood Park true or false?
Aynsley Pears, who joined from Middlesbrough in the summer, is set to make his Blackburn debut if Kaminski doesn’t reprise his role.
Summer signing Daniel Ayala missed the game against Coventry City after limping off against Watford but is due to be back in training today.
Mowbray indicated that they’re unlikely to risk the Spaniard despite the fact it was only a minor injury.
The Rovers boss told Lancashire Live that he is going to make a few changes for the game against Reading but kept his cards close to his chest as to who they would be, noting that he didn’t want to give too much away to Royals boss Veljko Paunović.
