Reading boss Nigel Adkins is likely to have the services of Adam Federici and Hope Akpan to call on this weekend.

The Royals have been without Australian goalkeeper and promising midfielder Akpan for around a month because of ankle injuries but the pair may return for Saturday's trip to Fulham.

"I'm pleased that Hope Akpan has been able to get on the training ground for a couple of days, whether we select him or not we'll have to wait and see but it looks as though he's over his injury now," said Adkins.

"Adam Federici has been on the training ground a bit today (Thursday) as well so hopefully he's over his ankle injury sufficiently. Apart from that, the lads are in good spirits and raring to go."
