An ankle injury threatens to keep Adam Federici on the sidelines as Reading valiantly attempt to remain aloft in the Premier League.

The Australian goalkeeper has missed the Royals' past three outings after damaging ankle ligaments in the lead-up to the Everton clash on March 2 and as of yet, there is no return date.

Reading currently sit second bottom in England's top flight, seven points from safety, with eight league matches remaining following the 1-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.
