The 31-year-old has yet to feature this season after undergoing ankle surgery in the summer, but he got 45 minutes under his belt for the Royals' Under-21 side in midweek.

"It was a good milestone to get to, having been out for so long," Leigertwood told the club website.

"The fact that I've had this opportunity to get involved with the Under-21s is great - Martin Kuhl, the Under-21s manager has been very good about me coming in and having a game and get me back to where I need to be.

"It felt good - I've tried to keep myself in the best possible shape as I can. Nothing can prepare you for that match intensity but I felt okay during the game. I felt fine and hopefully I can push on now."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
