CONFIRMED: Leeds United v Reading line-ups - No sign of Adryan!

Elland Road

Here are the sides as Leeds United host Reading in the Championship, kick-off from Elland Road at 19:45 GMT.

Leeds United: Silvestri, Byram, Bellusci, Pearce, Cooper, Cook, Bianchi, Mowatt, Sloth, Antentucci, Doukara

Subs: S Taylor, Warnock, Wootton, Murphy, Austin, Morison, Sharp

Reading: Federici, Gunter (C), Obita, Pearce, Hector, Akpan, Norwood, Taylor, Cox, Blackman, Murray

Subs: Andersen, Long, Cooper, Guthrie, Robson-Kanu, Mackie, Pogrebnyak

Both of these sides go into the match this evening on the back of dropping points in their last fixtures.

Leeds were defeated by Brentford 2-0 in their first match under Darko Milanic, which followed a run of four games without defeat under former caretaker boss Neil Redfearn.

Reading drew their last game 3-3 against Wolves in a match that left Neil Adkins frustrated by the side’s defensive work.

However, that point came after two back-to-back defeats in the league and the League Cup with the side not winning away from home since the end of August against Middlesbrough.

A win for the home side this evening would put them onto 16 points and ahead of Reading on the table, while a win for the visitors would move them onto 17 points, which would push them closer to the play-off places.
