The number of Covid cases within the Reading squad has eased dramatically – meaning Wednesday night’s fixture against Fulham is likely to go ahead.

The Royals had to postpone their games against Luton Town and Peterborough United over the festive period due to a coronavirus outbreak within their squad. But the position appears to have brightened over the past couple of days, according to Berkshire Live reporter Jonathan Low. He also reports that Reading should have first choice full backs Andy Yiadom and Baba Rahman available for selection against Fulham as the pair have been allowed to delay their trips to Cameroon to represent Ghana in the Africa Cup of Nations until January.

A letter sent to all clubs advising them of the availability requirements for the competition suggests that players selected in competing squads can represent their clubs until January 3rd. This should mean that Marco Silva can select Ivory Coast midfielder Jean Michael Seri for upcoming matches as well.

The news from Swansea regarding Fulham’s fixture next Monday looks less positive with a postponement considered likely at present.
