Paul Ince has made just the one change for the visit of Stoke City, with Junior Hoilett replacing Potters loanee Tom Ince.

Ince joined the Royals on loan from Stoke City in January, with former Reading captain Liam Moore going the other way.

The centre-back is injured and has since cut his deal with Stoke short, but Ince is ineligible to play against his parent side.

Hoilett returned from international duty with Canada, in which he helped his country qualify for the first World Cup since 1986, on Friday but was not involved in the squad that drew 1-1 with Barnsley on Saturday.

The rest of the team remains unchanged from that side that drew in South Yorkshire.
