Football - Royals trio struggling

Reading have doubts over three players for the home game against promotion rivals Derby.

PA Sport Report

Midfielder Danny Williams missed Tuesday night's 4-2 win over Leeds with a knee problem and striker Pavel Pogrebnyak sat out with an ankle injury.

Winger Garath McCleary, who scored the Royals' opening goal at Elland Road, had to come off before half-time with a hamstring problem.

Defenders Wayne Bridge and Sean Morrison (both knee) are close to returning from lengthy lay-offs while midfielder Mikele Leigertwood (ankle), striker Jason Roberts (hip) and winger Jem Karacan (cruciate) remain sidelined.
