Reading FC manager Veljko Paunovic has made three changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Hull City last weekend for this afternoon's clash with West Brom.

Andy Yiadom was replaced at half-time against the Tigers with a hamstring problem and he misses out on today's trip to The Hawthorns. In his place, 17-year old Tyrell Ashcroft makes just his second start for the Royals while there is also room for captain Liam Moore, returning from injury, as Reading switch to five at the back.

In midfield, Dejan Tetek comes in for Danny Drinkwater - struggling with a groin problem - while John Swift misses out entirely due to a hamstring injury.

Canadian winger Junior Hoilett is on the bench as he works his way back from an injury picked up on international duty.

West Brom meanwhile, have made four changes of their own as a Covid outbreak in the Baggies camp has limited them to just ten senior outfield players.
