Reading could have Jay Tabb and Andy Griffin back in their squad after the international break.
Tabb has played just 151 minutes for the Royals this season thanks to a foot injury while former Stoke full-back Griffin has missed the last eight matches with a hamstring injury. However, the duo are back in training and could be in contention to face Swansea on October 16.
Assistant Nigel Gibbs said: "Jay is back in training. He is looking sharp and it is just a case of building his fitness up and it is the same with Andy Griffin."
He added: "They will get a good week of training and see where they are after that.
"The depth of our squad is really good and we are pleased to have them back in contention."
