Michael Appleton provides injury updates on Chuks Aneke’s hamstring and Terry Taylor’s Surgery

Chuks Aneke’s hamstring injury has been updated by Michael Appleton.

The attacker was pulled off after 64 minutes of Reading’s 4-0 win at home last Saturday.


“If I’m being honest, early indications from the first scan don’t look great,” Appleton said at a press briefing on Friday. “Without sort of being quoted on it too much, it’s going to be a couple of months at least.”


Aneke will see a specialist next week.

The Head Coach also provided an update on midfielder Terry Taylor, who had successful ankle surgery.


“Terry’s doing fine,” Appleton remarked. “I know the brace is about to fall off his foot. It’s important to keep your chin up and your morale up in the first few weeks after surgery.


“Once you’re able to get back in the gym and be around the players and medical staff, the focus shifts to ‘right, what does the end line look like?'”


“It’s up to him and the players to keep his morale up and I’m sure they will,” he said. “Like most injuries, he’s got a lot of hard work ahead of him but he’s the type of lad and character who’s capable of doing it.”
