Ovie Ejaria has tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently self-isolating, manager Veljko Paunovic has confirmed. 

The midfield maestro hasn't featured for the Royals so far this campaign after a slight knock ruled him out of the first two games.

Ejaria was also missing from the squad for the defeat to Bristol City at the Select Car Leasing Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Speaking to the media post-match, the Reading FC manager confirmed that Ejaria is currently self-isolating after returning a positive Covid-19 test.

As a result, Ejaria will not feature in the upcoming trip to Coventry City on the weekend.
