Cardiff set to make changes for Reading rematch

Cardiff manager Neil Harris will shuffle his pack again for the FA Cup fourth-round replay with Reading.

This is the third meeting between the two sides in 10 days and, with Premier League Sheffield United awaiting the winners, Harris will take the opportunity to give some of his fringe players game time.

Sol Bamba, Josh Murphy and Danny Ward are all likely starters, but Joe Ralls (glute) could miss out again.

Loan trio Brad Smith, Albert Adomah and Dion Sanderson are ineligible as they were signed in the January transfer window after the original tie.

Reading boss Mark Bowen will also rotate heavily after nine games in January and another seven to come in February.

Charlie Adam, Garath McCleary and Andy Rinomhota all started the 1-1 draw at the Madejski Stadium and should be reunited in midfield.

Goalkeeper Sam Walker and defenders Omar Richards and Tyler Blackett could also feature after playing in the original tie.

New signings Felipe Araruna and Ayub Masika are ineligible and Matt Miazga (ankle) is a long-term casualty.
