Two seasons ago Leigertwood crashed in the goal which secured a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest and sent the Royals up to the Premier League.

The popular 31-year-old has since spent a year on the sidelines with an ankle problem, but he is finally back in action with Reading currently holding on to the final play-off spot with two games to go.

"It could happen, anything is possible," he said.

"We are in a good position, it is in our hands, and if there is something I can do - whether it's scoring a goal, making a challenge, clearing one off the line - it all counts.

"To play any part in this run-in and in trying to get us back to Wembley would be a great achievement."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
