Defender on 90 mins for U21sRoyals defender Sean Morrison was delighted to add 90 minutes to his recovery from injury, as he played for the under-21s on Monday night.
He took another step closer to a return to the first team after playing the full game against Leicester City at the Ricoh Arena, a week after playing 60 minutes for the Royals in a friendly.
"It was a huge positive," he told Reading FC Player. "It was all about getting through the night - we were disappointed with the result but it was great to get 90 minutes.
"I think it's been four and a half months since that QPR home game. I'm very pleased, I feel strong and I feel good. I got 60 minutes last week and 90 minutes the other night so I'm happy.
"It's nice for me to play with them young lads as well - they're a great bunch of lads and I've been there and done that so hopefully they can take something from me and push on and we'll see them in the first team soon. The quality of the young players that come through is unbelievable, I've seen that over the last few years."
Sean admits that injury set backs have been difficult to take during his spell on the sidelines, but feels stronger now and hopes to play a part in Reading's push for the play-offs towards the end of the campaign.
"I was out for three months because of my knee which was hard to get my head around, and then I pulled my quad when I started running again. It's been hard mentally but after all my gym work I feel good and with the game time under my belt now, hopefully I can put myself in contention now.
"Hopefully I can add to the strength of the squad and we can have a big push for the play-offs to get ourselves in there."
