Reading boss Steve Coppell admits winger Glen Little's ongoing injury problems are 'still bemusing'.
"Glen Little is still bemusing, I find it hard to understand to be honest," Coppell told the club's official website.
"He had injections in his Achilles, and I've had Achilles problems in the past and I know how painful it can be.
"But we seem to get so far and we hit a glass ceiling and then we go back again after more treatment, so it's not great.
"We really need him to make progress. I don't really know what the options are, but it would be such a boost, because of his personality and his ability.
"It would be such a boost to have him fit."
