The 23-year-old has been absent since November's 1-1 draw with QPR due to a knee ligament injury picked up in training the following week.

Prior to that, Morrison had been a regular fixture in Nigel Adkins' back four, featuring 15 times in the Sky Bet Championship.

His recovery was further delayed after straining his quad, but he is now eyeing a return within the next month.

"Sometime in March is the aim," he told the Reading Post.

"Hopefully, I'll be back full training by the end of this week then I can really crack on.

"It's been three and a half months now since it happened. It's been a difficult time but it's just one of those things in football you have to deal with.

"I've gone through it before, although this is the longest time out I've had. I would have been back three or four weeks ago but the quad injury set me back."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
