Football - Gorkss free to face Rovers

Reading boss Nigel Adkins could name an unchanged starting line-up for the eighth successive match at home to Blackburn after Kaspars Gorkss saw his four-game suspension overturned.

The Royals this week won their appeal against centre-back Gorkss' dismissal in last Sunday's impressive 3-1 victory at promotion rivals QPR.

That means Adkins is able to stick with the same XI which triumphed at Loftus Road, leaving the Berkshire club sixth in the Championship table.

Wayne Bridge and Sean Morrison (both knee) are closing in on their comebacks but Mikele Leigertwood (ankle), Jason Roberts (hip) and Jem Karacan (cruciate) remain a way off.
