Everton’s hopes of a top-four finish have faded in recent weeks, but a win at home to Reading today could keep the dream alive if other results are kind to them.
Brian McDermott’s Royals will be desperate to bounce back from last week’s disastrous 3-0 loss at home to Wigan and will need a positive result here in order to strengthen their survival bid as we head in to the season’s home stretch.
Here are today’s line-ups at Goodison Park:
Everton: Mucha, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Mirallas, Pienaar, Gibson, Osman, Fellaini, Jelavic. Subs: Springthorpe, Heitinga, Neville, Oviedo, Naismith, Hitzlsperger, Anichebe.
Reading: Taylor, Pearce, Mariappa, Leigertwood, Le Fondre, Hunt, McAnuff, Kebe, Harte, Kelly, Akpan. Subs: Henly, Gunter, Karacan, McCleary, Morrison, Robson-Kanu, Blackman.
