Reading have bolstered their defensive options with the addition of QPR's Matthew Connolly on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 24-year-old, who can operate anywhere across the backline, could miss out on a debut against Doncaster due to a minor injury.
Connolly played a key role in QPR's promotion last season, but has been restricted to six Premier League appearances this term.
Royals boss Brian McDermott has labelled Connolly as a 'really good signing', stating his versatility will be an asset.
"He can play anywhere in the back four and we think this is a really good signing," McDermott told the club's official website.
"He's played a number of games in the Premier League this year and played more than 30 times with Kaspars (Gorkss) last year.
"I remember him as a youngster at Arsenal, Bournemouth, he's been a utility player and he's just the job at 24."
