Brian McDermott confirms that goalkeeper Alex McCarthy faces time out with a shoulder injury.

Reading manager Brian McDermott has confirmed that goalkeeper Alex McCarthy faces a spell on the sidelines after his injury against Queens Park Rangers.

McCarthy, who crashed into the post when trying to save a Djibril Cisse shot, was expected to face a late fitness test ahead of the game against Norwich.

However, McDermott has confirmed that McCarthy will miss the game and is expected to be out "for a little while".

"Alex has seen a consultant, he has a shoulder joint problem and will be out for a little while," BBC News quotes McDermott as saying.

Adam Federici is expected to return to the lineup in McCarthy's absence.
