Ivar Ingimarsson and Emerse Fae have admitted frustration over their lack of Reading action this season.
Ingimarsson said: "It's not nice, I won't pretend it is. I want to play, just like everybody else."
Fae, 24, told BBC Radio Berkshire: "At Nantes I played all the games and when I came here I thought I would play all the games too. But I was not afraid of this. I just want to work hard and play more."
