Reading have suffered a double injury loss ahead of the Premier League’s return to action this coming weekend.
John Oster, just returning from an ankle injury was forced off due to injury in a recent reserve game but it was hoped that this was merely precautionary, but it has been confirmed as a reoccurrence of his ankle problem, and he is now likely to be out for a further six weeks.
Shane Long will join him on the sidelines after picking up a groin injury on international duty with the Republic of Ireland. The striker came on as a substitute against Germany only to pick up a groin strain and has since withdrawn from the squad.
