Royals hopeful on Pogrebnyak

14 April 2015

Assistant on missing striker

Assistant Manager Kevin Keen gave an update on Pavel Pogrebnyak after the Russian international missed Tuesday night's defeat to Bournemouth.

The striker was suffering with a slight calf injury, but the verdict was a hopeful one following the clash with the Cherries.

"Pav’s got a little niggle, he was missing because of injury, fingers crossed he’ll be fine for the weekend," said Keen.

"Danny (Williams) has had a few niggles coming back from international duty, but he’s trained for four or five days and is back in contention for the weekend, along with Jemba, which is a real positive for the whole squad and club. He’s come through a tough time, serious injury. Saturday was outstanding, he’s got a big contribution to make."
