Left-back Fox has not featured since the Championship's club defeat at Wigan Athletic last month, missing the past three matches with an ankle injury.

Boss Garry Monk said: "Hopefully Morgan can be back.

"He wasn't quite right (for Luton). He has been big for us this season and we will see with him for the weekend."

Adam Reach is in contention for a Sheffield Wednesday return

Reach, meanwhile, sat-out the last two clashes against relegation-threatened Barnsley and Luton Town because of a toe problem. The versatile midfielder has played 33 times this season, scoring twice.

Speaking after their 1-0 loss at Kenilworth Road, Monk told The Star: "Reachy has a sore toe; we thought it might be something a bit more sinister.

"He actually had scan on it today (Wednesday).

"I have not actually spoken to the doctor yet because I have been preparing for this game, but hopefully it is nothing too serious.

"I think it is just an old injury and his toe has flared up. I think it will be more a case of if the swelling has gone down he will be available as well."

Defender Moses Odubajo (hamstring) and midfielder Massimo Luongo (calf) are unlikely to be involved when they host 16th-placed Reading. Luongo appeared to be closing in on a first-team comeback after recovering from a groin strain but the Australian international now faces an extended spell on the sidelines after suffering a calf knock in training.
