Reading's Nelson Oliveira started against Aston Villa at the weekend in their 0-0 draw at the Madejski Stadium; however the striker was forced off with a nasty head wound late in the second half.

The Portuguese forward was stood on in a challenge by Tyrone Mings, and Oliveira was left with deep cuts on his face although Reading released a statement on Sunday that he has had surgery and is recovering well.
