Royals hope to call on Jordon Mutch

Reading hope to welcome Jordon Mutch back into the squad ahead of their Sky Bet Championship meeting with Brentford.

The 25-year-old midfielder was absent at the weekend due to a "small groin injury" but manager Jaap Stam has said he might be available for this midweek game.

The Royals, who currently sit fourth in the league table, are unbeaten in five games but Stam, who has been known to change a winning line-up, could make a number of changes.

Liam Kelly, who was substituted at half-time in the goalless draw with Barnsley, could be rested due to fatigue but there are no other fresh injury or suspension concerns.

Manager Dean Smith has no new injury worries either as Brentford travel to the Madejski Stadium.

The Bees are without a league win in two games, losing 4-2 to Preston at the weekend after drawing 3-3 with Brighton.

Rico Henry is building up his fitness in training following a shoulder injury but is not yet ready to return to the squad.

Alan Judge (broken leg) and Lewis Macleod (knee) remain sidelined.
