Football - Bridge back for Royals

Wayne Bridge returns to the Reading squad for Sunday's visit of his former club Brighton.

PA Sport Report

The ex-England left-back missed the 1-0 win at Yeovil a fortnight ago with a knee injury but resumed training on Wednesday.

Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and striker Jason Roberts (hip) were also back on the training field this week after long-term injuries but are still some way from returning to the first team.

Full-back Stephen Kelly is available again after missing out at Yeovil to attend the birth of his son, while Jobi McAnuff, Shaun Cummings, Garath McCleary, Chris Gunter, Hal Robson-Kanu and Kaspars Gorkss will be checked over having been on international duty this week.
