Reading boss Ruben Selles has recalled star striker Sam Smith for the Bristol Street Motors knockout clash with Charlton Athletic.

The 25-year-old returned to the club over the summer and has four goals in nine appearances.

Only appearing off the bench during Sunday's 2-1 FA Cup exit at non-league Eastleigh, he is one of seven changes made.

Clinton Mola, who started at centre-back on Sunday, moves to his more natural left-back while Ben Elliott, Amadou Mbengue and Paul Mukariu are the only ones to retain their places in the starting side.

Caylan Vickers, who has not appeared since the last EFL Trophy tie, returns from the start in a front three.

Lewis Wing and Sam Hutchinson join Elliott in the midfield while Tyler Bindon and Nelson Abbey are flanked by Mbenuge and Mola.

Charlie Savage and Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan provide ammunition from the bench if needed.

Former Royal Michael Hector starts for the Addicks.
