Reading low on numbers

Last Updated: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:44

Reading head to play-off rivals Wigan with a mounting injury list to contend with.

Hope Akpan (ankle), Danny Guthrie (calf) and Jem Karacan (knee) missed Monday night's 1-1 draw against Leicester while fellow midfielders Danny Williams (knee) and Garath McCleary (back) were patched up to play, only to suffer recurrences of their injuries.

Winger Jordan Obita also had to go off with a calf problem so boss Nigel Adkins admits he will have to hold a roll call ahead of the trip.

To make matters worse midfielder Mikele Leigertwood, thrown into action as a sub on Monday after a year out with an ankle injury, got himself sent off and serves a one-match ban.
