Mikele steps us comebackMikele Leigertwood played 45 minutes for our under 21s today, his first game in more than seven months.
It was a very positive step for the midfield man, who has unfortunately only played twice in the Nigel Adkins era following ankle surgery.
He looked composed and in command in his performance, wearing the captain's armband against an AFC Bournemouth XI.
The game finished 2-0 to the Cherries, with an early header and then a deflected effort in the second half giving the visitors victory.
Reading: Moore; Long, Griffin, Cooper, Hyam; Leigertwood (c), Tshibola; D'Ath, Murombedzi, Tanner; Samuel
Subs used: Stacey, Kelly, Kuhl, Fosu
