Fulham dealt Harrison Reed injury blow

Fulham have been dealt a fresh injury blow ahead of their upcoming Championship fixture.

What’s the latest?

Following Fulham’s comprehensive 4-1 victory over Birmingham City on Wednesday evening, a game in which Harrison Reed was withdrawn in the second half due to a knock, The Athletic journalist Peter Ruttzler revealed in a post on Twitter that the 26-year-old is still not operating at 100% fitness following his recovery from the calf injury which saw the defensive midfielder miss pre-season.

In his tweet, the journalist said: “Harrison Reed still building as he missed pre-season with a calf injury. Silva said [he] planned to take him or Chalobah off around 60/70mins. [Silva said:] ‘I hope it’s nothing special but will have to check.'”

Silva will be gutted

Considering just how impressive Reed was for Fulham against Birmingham, should the midfielder have suffered a setback in his recovery from injury, something that is clearly a concern following his substitution in the match, it would undoubtedly leave Marco Silva gutted.

Indeed, over his 65 minutes on the pitch on Wednesday, the £9m-rated man blocked one shot, made one key pass, one tackle and completed 100% of his attempted crosses.

These returns saw the former England U20 international earn a SofaScore match rating of 7.0, ranking him as the club’s joint sixth-best player to feature in the fixture.

As such, if the £31k-per-week midfielder is indeed ruled out of the club’s upcoming clash with Reading on Saturday, it would certainly come as a huge blow to Silva’s chances of keeping his side’s winning run going against the Royals.

However, hopefully for the Portuguese boss, Reed’s withdrawal against the Blues did enough to prevent a major injury recurrence, meaning he could well have a chance to feature once again this weekend.
