The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

IN­JURIES will frus­trate any player, so it was a huge re­lief to Read­ing mid­fielder John Swift when he made his first ap­pear­ance since the be­gin­ning of Novem­ber on Box­ing Day.

The mid­fielder came off the bench in Read­ing’s 3-1 win over Nor­wich af­ter re­cov­er­ing from a knock picked up while with the Eng­land Un­der-21s.

“It’s the sec­ond time it’s hap­pened to me on in­ter­na­tional duty,” said Swift.

“I don’t think any­one ex­pected us to be in this po­si­tion.

“For us, the fans andthe man­ager in his first sea­son, to be up and fight­ing in the top six is a great po­si­tion.”
