Football - Adkins to assess quartet

Reading will run the rule over a host of players ahead of the visit of Doncaster.

PA Sport Report

Midfielders Royston Drenthe and Danny Williams (both foot), winger Garath McCleary (knee) and striker Billy Sharp (groin) all missed the 2-1 defeat at Burnley before the international break.

But they have had a fortnight to get over those niggles and manager Nigel Adkins is hoping to have at least a couple of them available for selection.

But Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and Jason Roberts (hip) are further away from returns while Jem Karacan has undergone surgery on his cruciate injury.
