Mikele Leigertwood has confirmed he is fit to feature in the first leg of Reading's Championship play-off semi-final against Cardiff City.
The midfielder, who is on loan from Championship winners Queens Park Rangers, was forced off with an ankle injury during last Saturday's win over Derby County.
Reading face Cardiff at the Madejski Stadium in the first leg on Friday night and Leigertwood is eager to be involved.
"I'm feeling better, I was a bit sore on Sunday but it's eased up a bit now," Leigertwood told the club's official website.
"I'm obviously looking forward to the game, I'm in good hands and will hopefully be fine.
"Now we've got the play-offs, they're two big games, we felt we should have won at their place, we've got two cup finals to look forward to and hopefully push on to Wembley.
"It's nice to play in front of your own fans first, when I was at Palace we were at home first then went to Sunderland, we won that one and got promoted in the end. It can work both ways - we just want to win both legs."
