Gunter To Miss Out At Millwall

Royals full back Chris Gunter may miss tonight's re-arranged trip to Millwall after limping off during Saturday's FA Cup win at Cardiff City. Gunter managed 35 minutes at the weekend before going off with an injury to his ankle, to be replaced by Stephen Kelly. Kelly should now be in line for a start this evening.

Having made his debut for Reading at the weekend, Chelsea loanee Nathaniel Chalobah will make his first league start as Reading attempt to pull clear of the relegation zone.

Millwall will give another start to former Reading player Shaun Cummings who signed for The Lions earlier this month. Cummings made his debut in 1-3 home defeat against Ipswich. Millwall are in the bottom three - four places and seven points behind the Royals. Millwall are in deep relegation trouble after losing six out of their last seven games.

Earlier this season Reading wrapped up a 3-2 victory over Millwall at home thanks to two goals from Simon Cox and one from Nick Blackman. Last season we were 3-0 winners at The Den. Reading have an amazing recent record against Millwall. We have gone ten games without defeat over the Lions - a run that has included seven wins and three draws. Out of the last 15 games Reading have won 11, there have been 3 draws and the Royals have lost just one of the meetings.
