Reading have been handed a defensive boost after Sean Morrison revealed his ankle injury is not as bad as first thought.
The 21-year-old has been a revelation so far this season and had played every Premier League minute since making his debut back on November 4.
But the towering central defender was forced off the pitch just past the hour-mark in their 1-0 defeat at Southampton and left St Mary's on crutches with an ankle problem.
But after a scan on Sunday, Morrison received good news.
He said on Twitter: "For the people asking on my injury ... not as bad as we first thought!"
