Football - Duo back for Royals

Royston Drenthe and Danny Williams could return to the Reading squad for the trip to Blackburn.

PA Sport Report

Winger Drenthe and midfielder Williams are back in training after recovering from foot injuries and manager Nigel Adkins will decide whether they are fit enough to be involved.

But left-back Wayne Bridge has undergone knee surgery and is set to be sidelined until the new year, joining long-termers Jem Karacan (cruciate) and Jason Roberts (hip) on the casualty list.

Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood played for the Royals' Under-21s this week, his first match action since a summer ankle op, but he is some way from a return to the first team.
