Stewart Downing recovers from illness to be included in the Liverpool squad for the weekend's match against Reading.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Stewart Downing will be available for selection for this weekend's trip to Reading.

The winger had been rated as a doubt for the encounter because of illness, but Rodgers has said that he has made a recovery and will be considered.

"Stewart Downing had a bout of sickness last weekend just before the game, hence the reason for him having to come off. He's fine now," Rodgers told reporters.

Rodgers went on to confirm that young England international Raheem Sterling would not feature at the Madejski Stadium because of fatigue.
