Reading and Leeds will both be looking for their first wins of the Championship season as they lock horns at the Madejski Stadium this afternoon.

Steve Clarke's Reading opened the campaign with a defeat away at Birmingham City, and will now look to bounce back with a victory this afternoon.

Clarke's side contains a number of quality Championship players such as Chris Gunter, Stephen Quinn and Hal Robson-Kanu, whilst summer signing Orlando Sa makes his home league debut.

Their opponents Leeds kicked off their season with a creditable 1-1 draw with Burnley, but manager Uwe Rosler has been forced into some changes today.

Lewis Cook's suspension from his red card against Doncaster in midweek means that Kalvin Phillips starts in midfield, whilst Liam Cooper comes in for Giuseppe Bellusci in the heart of defence.

Luke Murphy is handed a place on the bench after a recent injury, whilst three forwards - Lee Erwin, Souleymane Doukara and Mirco Antenucci are also available as substitutes.
