Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray is confident midfielder Bradley Dack will be available for Wednesday night’s Ewood Park clash with Reading.

Dack scored the only goal in Rovers’ win at Hull on Saturday but sustained a foot injury which means he faces a late fitness test.

Defender Derrick Williams is once again ruled out as he struggles to recover from a foot injury he sustained in training.

Amari’i Bell is set to continue at left-back for Mowbray, who hopes to have no further injury issues for the game.

Reading boss Paul Clement is feeling the pressure after the Royals continued their pointless start to the season in Saturday’s defeat to Bolton.

But Clement has pulled off something of a coup in the transfer market by bringing in highly-rated Southampton younger Josh Sims on a season-long loan.

Sims is expected to play a significant part at Ewood Park while Clement could be further boosted by the respective returns of Sone Aluko and Mo Barrow.

Barrow has made good progress since picking up a hamstring injury in the Carabao Cup clash with Birmingham, while Aluko has also struggled this month.
