Blackburn manager Paul Lambert is set to choose from the squad that beat Rotherham for his last match in charge. Defender Tommy Spurr (Achilles) will not return and midfielder Hope Akpan (ankle) is also set to miss out.
Blackburn have never lost at home to Reading in league competition, winning three, while three of the last six league meetings between the sides have ended goalless. Rovers haven't won any of their previous four league games at Ewood Park, which is their joint longest run without a win on home soil this season.

Royals winger Hal Robson-Kanu has a calf problem and full-back Jordan Obita (hamstring) is also out. Manager Brian McDermott will look to the youngsters, with under-18s captain Josh Barrett set for a first start.
Reading, Blackburn, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City all go into their final game of the season level on 52 points and while Reading face Blackburn, Nottingham Forest travel to relegated MK Dons and Bristol City face an away match at QPR. The best Reading can now hope for is a 14th place finish whih relies on other results going in their favour. Reading come into the game on a six match winless streak and have only won twice in their last 18 away games. Reading have also never won at Ewood Park in seven visits.
