READING FC hitman Jon Dadi Bodvarsson faces a late fitness test and could feature against his former club Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday (3pm KO).

The Icelandic international, who endured a frustrating season in front of goal at Molineux, has been out of contention for several weeks after picking up a leg injury.

But the striker, who has scored twice for Royals since his summer switch, could turn out against his former employers if he passes a late fitness test.

Manager Jaap Stam said: "Jon Dadi is getting there. He's not completely fit but he's already working outside on the training pitch and he is sprinting.

"He's doing lots of work so it's a matter of days.

"We need to have a look at him, with the amount of games we have coming up we don't want to risk bringing in players too quickly."

Dutchman Stam believes his side have nothing to fear when they welcome table-topping Wolves to Madejski Stadium.

He knows Royals will be in for a tough test when they entertain Nuno Santo’s high-flyers, but Stam’s men appear to have put a dismal start to the season behind them following successive wins over Nottingham Forest and Derby County before the international break.

“We are absolutely not scared of facing them,” asserted Stam. “In this league everybody can beat everybody.

“The only thing is we really need to be up for it and know what you’re going to be facing. We need to know what their strengths are.

“They have built a completely new team and bought in a lot of new players. They’ve invested a lot of money in that team to try and go up to the Premier League.

“They have a quality team with lots of energy and ability, they have players who can score goals.

“ But we are absolutely not afraid, we believe in ourselves, we have played against very good sides this season and in the past.”

Joey van den Berg and Liam Kelly will also face fitness tests ahead of the game.

More positively for Stam however, Tiago Ilori is also in contention after recovering from a nasty head injury.

“He is feeling a lot better,” said Stam.

“He’s training with us and doing everything so he can go into the squad.”

Meanwhile, George Evans, Callum Harriott, Garath McCleary, Jordan Obita, Joseph Mendes and Stephen Quinn remain out of contention.
