Reading V Blackpool - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.Royals duo back from injuryReading have had some rare good news on the injury front with Glenn Murray and Danny Guthrie available to face Blackpool.Striker Murray missed the 3-0 midweek defeat at Bournemouth with a hamstring problem and midfielder Guthrie has been sidelined by a calf injury.The duo were joined by long-term crocks Garath McCleary (back), Danny Williams (knee) and Anton Ferdinand (hamstring) in a practice match on Thursday afternoon, although the latter three need more time to build up their match fitness.Club captain Jem Karacan is also back in training after a cruciate injury but he is still some way from a return to action.Captain Tony McMahon, who has been an ever-present in Blackpool's campaign thus far, will be suspended for the trip.The full-back has accrued five cautions in his past six games to trigger an automatic one-game ban and rule him out of a side who have only picked up two points from a possible 18 on the road.There is no respite on the injury front for boss Jose Riga either, with neither midfielder Jose Miguel Cubero or full-back Joan Oriol (both ankle) ready to return just yet.Defender Gary MacKenzie (knee) and striker Steven Davies (groin) have long-term problems and neither has appeared since August
