Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy hopes to be fit for next weekend's clash with Millwall.

McCarthy missed Saturday's 4-1 victory over Doncaster due to a knee injury but he is confident the problem will not keep him out for long.

"I had little knock to my knee which opened up my medial a little bit," he told BBC Radio Berkshire.

"It's nothing too serious - it was quite bad on Wednesday but it settled down really quickly and hopefully I'll be back in training next week."

Adam Federici replaced McCarthy against Rovers as the Royals climbed into the play-off places.

"It was a massive result to get three points," added McCarthy.

"After losing at Burnley and then having an international break it was important to get a win and we can take a lot from it into the Millwall game.

"We're very strong at home, we've got a lot of confidence and I think everyone can see that by the way we're playing."
