Reading make change in goal

Reading have made a change in goal as they look to keep out Albion today.

Australian keeper Adam Federici, who saved an Ashley Barnes penalty when these teams last met here at The Amex two seasons ago, replaces Alex McCarthy.

The Royals, roared on by about 2,000 fans who have taken the whole South Stand, welcome back centre-back Kaspers Gorkss and winger Jordan Obita after suspension and illness respectively.

Nick Blackman gets the nod to lead the attack ahead of Pavel Pogrebnyak while Adam Le Fondre plays just off him after Billy Sharp's loan deal from Southampton expired.

Jake Taylor makes his full debut in midfield.

Reading’s eight absentees due to injury include former Albion left-back Wayne Bridge (knee).

Reading: Federici; Gunter, Gorkss, Pearce, Kelly; McCleary, Guthrie, Taylor, Obita; Le Fondre; Blackman. Subs: McCarthy, Long, Tanner, Sweeney, Williams, Drenthe, Pogrebnyak.
