John O'Shea should return to the Reading squad when Paul Clement's side host QPR in Tuesday's Championship clash.
The former Manchester United and Sunderland defender missed Saturday's 2-2 draw at Brentford through suspension having been sent off in the 3-0 win at Hull.
Goalkeeper Vito Mannone is fit after missing four matches following a training-ground injury. Striker Sam Baldock is expected to miss out though, as he continues to struggle with a calf complaint.
Toni Leistner is back in training and could yet feature for QPR at the Madejski Stadium, having shaken off a groin injury. The German defender missed Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Swansea having picked up the issue in training on Friday.
Jordan Cousins can return for Steve McClaren's side having served a one-match suspension in the weekend's hefty defeat in south Wales. Sean Goss is back in league contention following a back injury picked up in pre-season. The midfielder featured in last week's Carabao Cup defeat to Blackpool.
Reading haven't won back to back league matches against QPR since April 2006.
The last eight league meetings between Reading and QPR at the Madejski Stadium have produced just seven goals.
After a run of five consecutive league defeats at the Madejski Stadium, Reading won their last home outing 3-0 against Hull.
QPR have lost their last two Championship games, having been unbeaten in the four previously (W3 D1).
QPR boss Steve McClaren has won his last six matches in all competitions against managers called Paul - Ince, Dickov (twice), Heckingbottom and Cook (twice).
David Prutton's predicts: 2-1 (9/1)
