Sports Mole previews the Championship encounter between Reading and Doncaster Rovers.

Reading go into their game with Doncaster Rovers looking to end a run of two matches without a win.

The Royals had previously won four games in five before the two setbacks against Barnsley and Burnley, but Nigel Adkins's side still remain just seven points off top of the table.

Adkins could hand a recall to striker Nick Blackman, despite the striker netting just once since the second week of the season.

Doncaster will be without Manchester United frontman Federico Macheda, after the striker was forced to return to his parent club due to injury.

James Coppinger could be included in place of Macheda as Rovers look to build on their success over Leicester City in their last game.
