Reading v Leicester preview

Reading boss Brian McDermott has no fresh injury concerns.
McDermott saw his side make it seven league wins in a row at Scunthorpe in midweek as the Royals climbed to within three points of the top two in the Championship.
And he could name an unchanged side after captain Matt Mills returned to the heart of the defence after a month out with a groin injury.
Goalkeeper Adam Federici is back after nine games out with a knee injury but has been restricted to a place on the bench due to the form of England Under-21 international Alex McCarthy.
Forward Noel Hunt (foot) is still out but defender Alex Pearce is fit after a thigh injury.
The Royals will be looking to continue their impressive home form, having lost just three league games at the Madejski all season.
Kyle Naughton could return to the Leicester squad.
The full-back, on loan from Tottenham, has missed the last two games through illness.
City assistant manager Derek Fazackerley said: “Kyle is feeling a lot better, he hasn’t trained for close on a week so we will have to see how he goes.”
Fazackerley added: “There were some knocks and bruises from the Palace game but we will have pretty much a full-strength squad to pick from.”
City have plenty of options available should they wish to make changes, with defenders Jeffrey Bruma and Bruno Berner in contention to start.
Midfielders Yuki Abe and Lloyd Dyer and strikers Darius Vassell and Steve Howard are also pushing for recalls.
