Long fit for Royals

Last updated : 14 January 2011

Long made his tally seven goals in the last six games last weekend with the winner in the FA Cup defeat of West Brom, but was replaced after taking a knock.

However, the Republic of Ireland international is fit to keep his place in attack.

The Royals should also have Andy Griffin available for selection.

The right-back was rested for the FA Cup win and saw Shaun Cummings turn in an excellent performance in his place to give manager Brian McDermott a dilemma.

Defender Zurab Khizanishvili is a doubt after he picked up a knee injury, but club captain Ivar Ingimarsson is available after shaking off a long-term hamstring injury which has so far ruled him out of the whole season.
