Reading FC manager Veljko Paunovic has given an update on the fitness of five Reading FC first-team players.

The boss confirmed after Reading's 3-0 defeat to West Ham United that Tom McIntyre, Tom Holmes and George Puscas are all currently self-isolating.

It is understood that all three are likely to miss the pre-season clash with Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Lucas Joao was ruled out today due to a minor soft tissue injury.

This is not expected to rule Joao out for any substantial length of time.

The Royals boss also confirmed that Felipe Araruna's rehabilitation following surgery in the summer is going well.

The versatile Brazilian is expected to return to training in around five weeks time.
