Reading midfielder Hope Akpan is an injury doubt ahead of next weekend's visit of Sheffield Wednesday.
The play-off chasing Royals have been dealing with an extensive injury list all season and lost Akpan after half an hour of Saturday's 3-0 win at Millwall.
"We lost Hope with an ankle injury, but young Jake Taylor did ever so well in there," said manager Nigel Adkins.
"It's too early to tell on Hope for next week, credit to him for carrying on and trying to run it off.
"We've got a lot of games coming, everyone is having a go for each other, which is great."
