Worry over Royals pair

Last Updated: Mon, 10 Mar 2014 10:49

Reading duo Danny Williams and Pavel Pogrebnyak face fitness tests ahead of the trip to Leeds.

Midfielder Williams missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Brighton after returning from international duty with the USA with a swollen knee, and striker Pogrebnyak also sat out due to an ankle problem.

Boss Nigel Adkins started with Kaspars Gorkss and Garath McCleary on the bench following their exertions with their countries in the week, so they could return to the starting line-up.

Defenders Wayne Bridge and Sean Morrison (both knee) are close to returning but might not be risked just yet while midfielder Mikele Leigertwood (ankle), striker Jason Roberts (hip) and winger Jem Karacan (cruciate) remain sidelined.
