Doubts still remain over the availability of Reading defender Tom Holmes ahead of what could be his final involvement for his boyhood club.

24-year-old Holmes rose through the ranks with the Royals and has been on the books with the club for 16 years, making over 130 appearances in the process.

Signing for Premier League Luton Town in January, but was loaned back until the summer to help keep his side in League One, the centre-back suffered a back injury in February and has not featured since.

Blackpool's visit to Berkshire on Saturday will mark the end of Holmes' time as a Royal, linking back up with the Hatters for pre-season.

Over 18,000 supporters are packing into the SCL Stadium for the final day of the season, many hoping to give Holmes a send-off.

"Tom has been training partially so let’s see how he goes tomorrow, and it will be a decision to make for Saturday," boss Ruben Selles confirmed to the press ahead of the game.

Having said goodbye to fellow long-standing servants in January, such as Tom McIntyre and Nelson Abbey, Selles feels it is something the club can do better.

"I think one of the minus things that we need to be better at in the club is how to say goodbye to people like Tom, who has been with the club for a long time. It is on me- I don’t think you are forced to do it, but it is always a good thing. As a club, we should become better at saying farewell to people like Tom. Let’s see what happens, I have all the considerations and we need to make a decision. As a club, we can do better."
