Do we know if Dack is fit? Keep checking twitter but not seen anything yet

He’s not my type, but each to their own.

If Dack isn't 100% then I hope Mowbray doesn't risk starting him, that happened at the back end of last season and he was clearly not fit and eventually needed to recover in the post season. I'd rather he was on the bench tonight and then 100% ready for Brentford which on paper looks like the harder fixture.

We've got plenty of options as important as he is and we know Reading are low on confidence so we should hopefully start the game as we did against Hull. I think my preference would be:

----------------Raya
Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Bell
---------Smallwood Evans
Bennett---Palmer--Armstrong
-------------Graham

No Dack or Palmer. Our chance to show we are not a one man team. All I get told at work.

Rothwell has been good when he’s had minutes. Hope he does well.

What’s the deal today with this team; Reading was dead offensively, then they play us

Looked good first 5 mins. Now ever player is playing terrible. Need a goal before half time. Not much on the bench to change this either.

Why is Palmer out? Didn’t see any injury news on him. Lack of depth in the squad being shown now.
