Reading's Hunt: I won't speak to Cech

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech hopes to be fit to return to Reading on Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his skull at the Madjeski Stadium last year, but he will not receive a warm welcome from Stephen Hunt.

Hunt connected with the Czech Republic goalkeeper's head in the most controversial incident of the season. The Ireland midfield player made several attempts to check on Cech's wellbeing last season, but all were rejected by Chelsea.

"I haven't spoken to him and I won't either," Hunt said. "That's not meant to be rude, it's just all forgotten now and we move on. I approach every game as normal. We will line up and shake hands, but that's it.

"Unfortunately, the incident made so many headlines and I guess a lot of people were asking, 'Who is he?' But by the end of the season I think I made a name for myself as a footballer. I think I did all right."
