Jaap Stam Gives Injury Update On Paul McShane, Tiago Ilori, And Others

His selection headache is made easier with a host of first teamers out injured.

Reading FC's squad is big. There is quality littered throughout it and none of us really know what the starting XI will be from game to game.

Our job — and Jaap's — will be easier for the near future, though, as a host of first team players are out injured and unlikely to return for impending fixtures.

Tom Crocker, Sports Reporter for Wokingham Sport, tweeted the following:

Paul McShane is the closest to returning, and if we extrapolate "a couple of games", we can estimate that the captain could return to the side for the away fixture against Huddersfield Town on February 21.

Ilori, Van den Berg, Quinn, Rakels and Harriott, however, are out for the foreseeable future. Which would be bad news, if it weren't for the fact that this current Reading squad is one of the best we've had in recent years.
