🗞️ Team News: Watford

Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Watford gaffer Xisco Muñoz to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group. Tom Dele-Bashiru (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.

📰 Team News: Reading

Owing to an otherwise healthy group of players, there is just the lone fitness issue for the Reading boss Veljko Paunović to be concerned about. John Swift (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action.
