Jimmy Kebe remains a major doubt for Reading's Barclays Premier League game against Manchester United.

Midfielder Kebe has faced a tricky recovery from the groin injury that has kept him out for almost three weeks and could miss tomorrow's match.

Danny Guthrie should be available following a thigh problem that has laid him low this month but Alex McCarthy and Jem Karacan remain sidelined.

Manchester United will be without wing duo Nani and Antonio Valencia for Saturday's trip to Reading.

Nani will be missing for another four or five weeks with a hamstring injury, whilst Valencia has been ruled out with a hip problem.

Paul Scholes returns from suspension, whilst Ryan Giggs has shrugged off a minor hamstring complaint.

Provisional squads

Reading: Federici, Taylor, Gunter, Cummings, Gorkss, Pearce, Morrison, Mariappa, Shorey, Harte, McAnuff, Guthrie, Leigertwood, Tabb, McCleary, Pogrebnyak, Le Fondre, Hunt, Robson-Kanu, Roberts.

Man United: De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Jones, Evans, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evra, Buttner, Fletcher, Carrick, Scholes, Anderson, Powell, Cleverley, Young, Giggs, Van Persie, Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez.
