Reading boss Steve Coppell has revealed striker Leroy Lita could be out until next month after the England Under-21 international suffered a freak injury in bed.

Lita damaged a muscle while stretching after he woke up, and has been unable to train for two days.

And Coppell told Sky Sports News: "It´s not an injury that should be ridiculed or made light of."
