Dion Donohue is earmarked to play a full 90 minutes as he continues his rehabilitation from his groin injury.

The Welshman will only make his second appearance since last campaign after missing the entire pre-season schedule – firstly through foot blisters and then glandular fever. 

Donohue, 25, featured for 62 minutes in Pompey Reserves’ 2-1 Premier League Cup qualifier defeat at Plymouth on Tuesday.

The former Chesterfield man captained the side at Home Park. He was handed a 62-minute run-out before being replaced by James Whiting. 

The clash against the Royals will be the Blues’ second behind-closed-doors friendly this term.

They defeated Swindon 3-1 at the club’s Roko training base last month.

The likes of Luke McGee, Joe Mason and Louis Dennis – who still awaits his Blues debut – are also set to be involved.
