Callum Harriott’s injury meant he missed the win at Bristol City on Monday with the Reading winger poised to miss the upcoming games with Manchester United and QPR as well – potentially more.

The Royals will have a nine day break after those games before the meeting with Derby in the Championship later in the month but the 22 year old would probably face a race against time to be fit for that game at the iPro Stadium on 21st January.

Harriott limped out of the game against Fulham last Friday – a game that was of course abandoned due to heavy fog – with Jaap Stam confirming his hamstring injury will keep him out for at least a couple of weeks.

Stam was quoted by Get Reading as saying.

‘Callum is having a scan. He’s got a problem with his hamstring, we don’t know exactly yet how bad it is but he’s going to be out probably for a couple of weeks.’

The former Charlton winger might be sidelined for a while but the news was better for Deniss Rakels with it confirmed by the boss he’s close to making his return from a broken ankle.

However, Stephen Quinn and Anssi Jaakkola will continue to sit things out for a while due to knee problems.
