Akpan and Feds train, Kebe ruled outRoyals manager Nigel Adkins was pleased to reveal that midfielder Hope Akpan and goalkeeper Adam Federici have both returned to training this week.
Akpan has been suffering with an ankle injury he sustained against Southampton a month ago, while Feds has been out since that game after he picked up a similar injury to Hope's.
"I'm pleased that Hope Akpan has been able to get on the training ground for a couple of days, whether we select him or not we’ll have to wait and see but it looks as though he’s over his injury now," said Nigel.
"Adam Federici has been on the training ground a bit today as well so hopefully he’s over his ankle injury sufficiently. Apart from that, the lads are in good spirits and raring to go. Kebe is out for a while but still recovering."
Adkins also had a word on long-term absentee Jason Roberts (hip), who has made significant progress from his recovery.
"Jason comes off his crutches today, so that’s really positive. That’s a big step forward in his rehabilitation."
