Alex McCarthy's shoulder injury will force him to miss the rest of the season.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper saw a specialist yesterday and was advised he needs an operation after clattering into a post during Reading’s 1-1 draw with QPR on November 4.
He tweeted last night: “On route back home from London, was expecting the outcome with the specialist. Surgery on Monday my season over!
Jem Karacan (knee) misses Saturday's home game against Manchester United and Jimmy Kebe (groin) is a major doubt, but Danny Guthrie
(thigh) has a chance of being involved.
