Fulham v Reading line-ups: Whites duo ruled out, Johansen back, Royals make three changes

Fulham make three changes for their Championship play-off first leg with Reading, with recalls for Ryan Fredericks, Stefan Johansen and Floyd Ayite.

Fredericks and Johansen – who were rested in the final game of the regular season at Sheffield Wednesday – replace Denis Odoi and Lucas Piazon, while Ayite earns a start after coming off the bench to score twice at Hillsborough.

Scott Malone starts at left-back ahead of 16-year-old Ryan Sessegnon, who is among the substitutes.

Defenders Ragnar Sigurdsson (calf) and Michael Madl (ankle) are out for both legs but could be available for the final at Wembley if the Whites progress.

Reading also make three changes, with Tyler Blackett returning to a three-man defence in place of Tiago Ilori.

Danny Williams and former Brentford loanee John Swift come in at the expense of Liam Kelly and Roy Beerens.

Fulham: Bettinelli; Fredericks, Kalas, Ream, Malone; McDonald, Johansnen; Aluko, Cairney, Ayite; Martin.
Subs: Button, Odoi, Sessegnon, Parker, Piazon, Kebano, Cyriac.

Reading: Al Habsi; McShane, Moore, Blackett; Gunter, Evans, Williams, Swift, Obita; Grabban, Kermorgant.
Subs: Jaakkola, Van den Berg, Beerens, Mendes, McCleary, Ilori, Popa.
