Reading have suffered a major injury blow in their battle against Championship survival, with both Nelson Oliveira and Yakou Meite suffering injuries in their game against West Brom.

The Portuguese striker Oliveira, who has only just returned from injury, pulled up with a hamstring problem just minutes into the game at the Madejski Stadium and was replaced by Danny Loader.

The Royals suffered another huge blow as manager Jose Gomes was forced to make a second substitution within the opening 15 minutes, as top scorer Meite suffered a muscle injury and was replaced by Garath McCleary.

Oliveira has been an important player for Reading since joining on loan from Norwich in January, scoring three goals in ten Championship appearances for the Royals.
