Reading youngster Jeriel Dorsett returned from a long-term injury lay-off to feature in 60 minutes of Kilmarnock's defeat to Livingston.

The central defender moved to Rugby Park over the summer but appeared just twice, against both Rangers and Celtic, before sustaining ligament damage against the Bhoys over a month ago.

A former fan favourite with League Two Rochdale, winning their Young Player of the Year award last season, he returns with Killie second bottom in the Scottish Premiership- the relegation play-off position.

Signing a new deal with the Royals during the close season, many had hoped this would be the campaign he stakes a claim for a first team squad berth.

Not the only Reading-related star with battling injury this season, there has been somewhat of a crisis with the likes of Naby Sarr, Shane Long, Ovie Ejaria, Scott Dann and Mamadou Loum all fighting injuries over recent weeks.

However, most are set to return following the culmination of the international break.
