Leigertwood may be available on SaturdayBrian McDermott revealed in his press conference on Thursday morning that midfielder Mikele Leigertwood is in contention for the Royals' trip to Newcastle on Saturday.
Leigertwood has been recovering from a knock but now may be available for selection this weekend, while Jason Roberts is sidelined with a hip problem.
Brian said, "Jason (Roberts) isn't ready - I don't know about a time frame for him. But hopefully Mikele should be in with a shout."
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is also unavailable as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury sustained in November.
