New signing Daniel Carrico is being lined up to make his Reading debut in the Barclays Premier League clash with West Brom on Saturday week.

Manager Brian McDermott has indicated that Carrico will miss this weekend's FA Cup third-round tie at Crawley after only completing his £600,000 move from Sporting Lisbon on New Year's Eve.

"Daniel will train tomorrow fully with the squad for the first time and then we'll have a look next week," McDermott said of the 24-year-old, who can play in defence or midfield.
