So plenty of changes for either side.
The headlines for Reading is a return for Adam Federici while there's again no room for last year's player of the season Alex Pearce. Is the defender being omitted for form reasons or is this to do with his contract having just over 6 months left to run? Likewise there's no Danny Guthrie despite the manager's insistance that there's been no bust up.....
Meanwhile as expected Arsenal have fielded a team full of youth players but will the likes of Arshavin and Walcott in the lineup there's still plenty of players that can cause us problems.
Reading: Federici; Gunter, Shorey, Gorkss (c), Morrison; Leigertwood, Tabb, McCleary, Robson-Kanu; Hunt, Roberts
Arsenal: Arsenal: Martinez; Jenkinson, Djourou (c), Miquel, Koscielny; Arshavin, Frimpong, Gnabry, Coquelin; Chamakh, Walcott
