Defender doubtful for Royals clash

The 30-year-old made only his third start in 19 months in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Bristol City after a persistent knee problem and will be assessed just before the game to see how he coped with the rigours of a 90-minute match.
If Milne fails to make it, young centre-half Niall Canavan could come into the starting line-up for his third league start since joining last summer.
Marcus Williams is also a doubt after suffering discomfort in his hamstring with Andrew Wright on stand-by to replace the full-back.
The Iron have suffered crippling defensive injuries this season with centre-backs Rob Jones (calf) and Michael Raynes (ankle) still on the sidelines.
