Sean Morrison: Suffered his injury in Reading's 1-0 defeat by Southampton

The defender sustained the problem shortly after the hour of Saturday's 1-0 loss and had to be substituted before later having to leave St Mary's on crutches.

Reading are yet to determine the full extent of the injury but boss Brian McDermott does not think Morrison will be available for Tuesday's game at fellow Premier League strugglers Sunderland.

And the 21-year-old can be added to a sidelined list of Jimmy Kebe, Pavel Pogrebnyak, Chris Gunter and Alex McCarthy, while Jem Karacan is only just back in light training.

McDermott told Reading's official website: "We've been unfortunate with injuries.

"I'm not one to really moan about it but we've had long-term ones with the likes of Alex McCarthy. But that's why you have a squad.

"I'm not sure Morro' will be available Tuesday, it's his ankle and he's on crutches as a precaution. Pavel is out, Jem, Jimmy and so on. Come Tuesday, we'll be ready again."

Goalkeeper McCarthy suffered his shoulder injury against Queens Park Rangers at the beginning of November and he is now facing an extended spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
