Paul Ince has made nine changes for Reading's FA Cup clash with Watford, including a first start of the season for Femi Azeez.

The winger had a brief cameo off the bench against West Brom after suffering injury during pre-season, but starts alongside Lucas Joao and Shane Long against the Hornets.

Despite hinting that Liam Moore will play a part in the match, his first involvement for over a year, the former captain is not involved in the squad.

Sam Hutchinson, Scott Dann, Naby Sarr and Tom McIntyre, all first team regulars, keep it a relatively experienced side.

Watford, struggling with 16 injuries, have two debutants in the team and former Royals Ben Hamer and Leandro Bacuna on the bench.
