Portsmouth defender Enda Stevens will serve a one match ban after he was sent off against Morecambe. Striker Jayden Stockley could start the game but defender Ben Davies (leg) and midfielder Kal Naismith (thigh) are both unavailable.

Alex Fernandez could make his full debut for Reading after the midfielder joined on loan from Espanyol. Peru winger Paolo Hurtado is highly unlikely to feature for the first time while Dominic Samuel and Pavel Pogrebnyak are out.

What The Opposition Think
"Pompey are the underdogs in this match, there's no question about it. However, especially having been at Fratton Park on Saturday to watch our fantastic comeback against Morecambe, the Blues are looking very solid at the moment and I have a good feeling about this game! It'll be an interesting one to watch, given Pompey's strong start to the season and Reading's unstable one.
Portsmouth 3-1 Reading."
