Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici is in line for a recall for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Norwich.

Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici is in line for a recall for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Norwich.

The Australian international is likely to return with current first-choice Alex McCarthy being ruled out for a number of weeks after suffering a shoulder injury in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at QPR.

Royals boss Brian McDermott is also without midfield duo Jem Karacan (knee) and Danny Guthrie (thigh), although the latter could return as early as next week. Forward Noel Hunt is available after shaking off a calf problem.

Provisional squad: Federici, Taylor, Gunter, Cummings, Gorkss, Pearce, Morrison, Mariappa, Shorey, Harte, McAnuff, Leigertwood, Tabb, McCleary, Kebe, Pogrebnyak, Le Fondre, Hunt, Robson-Kanu, Roberts.
