Squad named for Reading clash

Alan Pardew has announced a 20-man squad for tomorrow's Premiership clash against Reading at Upton Park.

Christian Dailly returns after missing Thursday's UEFA Cup clash in Palermo with a slight knee injury, but James Collins is unavailable after aggravating a groin strain in Sicily.

Anton Ferdinand, Tyrone Mears and John Pantsil are also still sidelined with injuries, meaning that Jonathan Spector is likely to continue at right-back after making his debut for the club against Palermo.

Squad: Carroll, Green, Walker, Dailly, Konchesky, Gabbidon, Spector, Bowyer, Mascherano, Mullins, Benayoun, Etherington, Reo-Coker, Reid, Ephraim, Tevez, Cole, Harewood, Sheringham, Zamora.
