Former Cambridge United favourites Sam Smith and Harvey Knibbs are starting for Reading against their former employers this afternoon.

The attacking pair moved to Berkshire in the summer after being key members of the U's side that secured League One survival on the last day of last season.

Knibbs and Smith are both in double figures for goals this season, in decent scoring form of late.

Losing 2-1 at Derby County on Tuesday, Ruben Selles has made just one change after Andy Yiadom was controversially sent off.

Jeriel Dorsett has returned to fitness and starts in the back four, alongside Clinton Mola; Amadou Mbengue and Tyler Bindon.

Lewis Wing and Charlie Savage join Knibbs in midfield, while Smith is flanked either side by Femi Azeez and Ben Elliott.

The likes of Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan and Paul Mukariu are on the bench if the the club are in need of a goal.

Former Reading captain Michael Morrison starts for Cambridge, having not missed a game this season.
