HRK injured in Stevenage friendly

Reading drew their penultimate friendly fixutre with Stevenage, as a stalemate at the Lamex Stadium was compounded by an injury to Hal Robson-Kanu.

Nienty minutes were given to 8 players in the game, where Shaun Cummings lined up at left-back and Jordan Obita played the whole game in central midfield. The biggest talking point was an injury to Hal Robson-Kanu, which potentially rules him out of the start of the season.

It didn't sound like the best pre-season game, but both keepers had to be on their game to make some good saves in each half. Jake Taylor should have had a penalty in the first period, while Stevenage had a goal disallowed for a foul on Alex McCarthy in the area.

HRK's injury happened in the first half, after a rash challenge from a Stevenage player, which had Adkins racing down the stairs to berate the fourth official. The gaffer revealed after the game that the Welsh international is likely to miss the trip to Wigan in nine days time.

This further compounds the injury worries we have, with the likes of Stephen Kelly, Danny Guthrie, Danny Williams, Jem Karacan and Garath McCleary. Considering we are low on strikers as it is, an injury to HRK is not ideal at the moment - time to step up Nick Blackman!

Reading XI: McCarthy, Gunter, Pearce, Morrison, Cummings, Hector, Obita, Blackman, Edwards, Taylor, Robson-Kanu
Subs: Federici, Andersen, Hyam, Akpan, Stacey, Pogrebnyak
