Reading vs. West Ham United: Lineups

Sam Allardyce got a present from the FA with Carlton Cole's red card against Everton being rescinded making the striker available for today's match. Despite the congested and busy holiday schedule, West Ham will field the same eleven players today as they did during their mid-week loss. Since their 3-1 defeat of Chelsea, the Irons haven't won and will be looking to turn things around today.

Reading are desperate for points as they find themselves being buried deeper and deeper in the relegation zone. After a point against Swansea on Wednesday, Brian McDermott has decided to field the same starting lineup as well.

West Ham United starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Jussi Jääskeläinen; James Tomkins, Winston Reid, James Collins, Joey O'Brien; Mark Noble, Gary O'Neil; Kevin Nolan, Matthew Taylor, Matt Jarvis; Carlton Cole.

Reading starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Adam Federici; Chris Gunter, Ian Harte, Adrian Mariappa, Alex Pearce; Jem Karacan, Mikele Leigertwood; Jobi McAnuff, Jimmy Kébé, Danny Guthrie; Pavel Pogrebnyak.
