READING FC strike duo Nelson Oliveira and Yakou Meite will miss the final two games of the Skybet Championship season due to injury.

Norwich loanee Oliveira and top goalscorer Meite both suffered hamstring injuries during the 0-0 draw against West Bromwich Albion on Monday, and will sit out Saturday's trip to play-off chasing Middlesbrough along with the final game at home to Birmingham City the following Sunday.

Defender Tyler Blackett is also unlikely to feature again this term due to a similar injury.

However, Paul McShane has returned to light training and fellow Irish defender John O'Shea is also improving.

Midfielder John Swift's hip operation has proved successful and he is recovering well, although Jordan Obita remains a long-term casualty.
