Reading duo Mikele Leigertwood and Jason Roberts both return to first-team training.

Reading director of football Nicky Hammond has revealed that experienced duo Mikele Leigertwood and Jason Roberts have both returned to training.

Leigertwood has not played this season after undergoing an ankle operation in the summer, while a hip injury has kept striker Roberts on the sidelines.

"They are both back on the training field and have been making progress. It will be nice to have them both back in contention," Hammond told PA.

Reading currently sit ninth in the Championship.
