Swansea is without regular left back Neil Taylor (ankle) through long-term injury and 19-year-old Ben Davies has started in his place, but newly signed Dwight Tiendalli is another option. Center back Kyle Bartley (thigh) is also out injured.
Michu has been a regular starter behind Danny Graham in attack, but Michael Laudrup faces a choice between Leon Britton, Jonathan De Guzman and Ki Sung-Yeung for the two center midfield positions, and between Nathan Dyer, Pablo Hernandez and Wayne Routledge for the two wings. Midfielder Kemy Agustien (calf) is recovering from injury.
Alex McCarthy will start again in goal for Reading, with Adam Federici (knee) unavailable. Competition for places in defense could be fierce, with Brian McDermott having made many defensive changes against Newcastle, bringing in Nicky Shorey at left back in place of Ian Harte, Jamaican international Adrian Mariappa for Alex Pearce, and Shaun Cummings for Chris Gunter.
Winger Jimmy Kebe returned from injury on Saturday and is set to continue in place of Garath McCleary on the right flank, with Jobi McAnuff on the left.
The manager also faces a choice between whether to revert to starting Pavel Pogrebnyak up front as a lone striker, or continue with last week’s 4-4-2 and play either Adam Le Fondre or Noel Long in attack in place of one of three central midfielders Jem Karacan, Mikele Leigertwood and Danny Guthrie.
