Former Reading captain Liam Moore has returned to a matchday squad for the first time in almost 500 days for the visit of Sheffield United.

The defender was stripped of his captaincy and has suffered a series of long-term injuries over the past 12 months, involved under Paul Ince for the first time.

There are four changes to the starting lineup compared to the 5-0 loss at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Joe Lumley returns after being ineligible against the Boro, Scott Dann, Tom Holmes and Nesta Guinness-Walker all return to the defence after places on the bench on Teesside.

Amadou Mbengue and Cesare Cadasei drop to the bench.

Lumley; Carroll; Holmes; McIntyre; Dann; Long; Hendrick; Ince; Yiadom; Guinness-Walker; Sarr

Reading-born Jayden Bogle starts for the Blades, scoring the winner in the equivalent fixture last season.

Former Royals Ollie Norwood and Billy Sharp are in the squad, with Norwood starting.
