Sports Mole previews Reading's game with Arsenal at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Reading manager Brian McDermott must decide whether to recall Danny Guthrie after the midfielder was left out of the squad that drew 3-3 with Fulham at the weekend.
Noel Hunt could replace Jason Roberts, while Hal Robson-Kanu, who came off the bench to score Reading's last-minute equaliser on Saturday, could replace winger Jimmy Kebe.
