Sears pushing for Royals start

Date published: Monday 7th December 2009 11:16

The Eagles fired blanks as they crashed to a 3-0 home defeat by Doncaster on Saturday so West Ham loanee Freddie Sears is pushing for a place in attack.

Fellow striker Calvin Andrew should also be involved again having made three substitute appearances since recovering from the cruciate injury he suffered at the end of last season.

Winger Sean Scannell was also on the bench on Saturday after a hamstring problem and could figure.

Warnock has no new injury worries, with defender Paddy McCarthy the only casualty after his recent shoulder operation.

Young left-back Lee Hills serves the final game of his three-match ban.

Kick-off 8pm.
