Keane fit to return for Reading trip

Will Keane is fit to play at Reading tomorrow after suffering an eye injury in the midweek draw with Birmingham.

The Manchester United loanee was forced off 15 minutes from time on Tuesday and had three stitches in a cut on his eyelid. However, he has been given the all-clear to return to the squad and is likely to figure up front.

Sam Hutchinson is also available after suspension but Chris Kirkland will again be missing from the bench due to illness, with Joe Wildsmith expected to take his place.

Jeremy Helan will be hoping for a starting place after impressing when he came on as a second-half substitute against Birmingham and Stuart Gray could well recall Stevie May to play alongside Keane, replacing Atdhe Nuhiu who had a disappointing game on Tuesday.
