Just Too Little, Too Late?

Just Too Little, Too Late?

Former Clarets winger,Glen Little could still feature for Reading in our two-leg play-off semi final clash with the Berkshire side.

He looks set to return to training later this week according to the Official Reading site

Little missed Sunday's vital match against Birmingham with a hamstring problem. The Royals lost that match 2-1 at the Madejski and in so doing failed in their bid for automatic promotion having to settle for 4th place and a play-offs clash against 5th placed Burnley in the two leg semi final.

Glen Little spent 8 years at Turf Moor before moving on a Bosman to Reading in the summer of 2004 following a loan spell at the club. He helped the Royals gain promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2005/6 season, scoring five goals and assisting in a record 14 goals.

An injury picked up in the close season kept him sidelined for the early part of the 2006/7 season in the top flight although he did return at right wing later in the season.

In 2007/8 he again suffered from a number of injuries and when Reading were relegated that season he decided to sign for Portsmouth on a one-year contract in June 2008. His appearances though were limited,playing for Pompey on only 5 occasions.

Little, now 33 rejoined Reading on loan until the end of the season in March 2009. He has played eight times for the club but has yet to score.

I think and hope you are probably right,Accy (welcome back by the way). I saw him play in their game away to Norwich recently and he didn't seem to be contributing much. He picked up his hamstring in that match and that's something else he seems prone to,injuries!!

As long as he doesn't find his form again, against us, I think he should score the winning goal right in the bak of his own net, then he will always be super Glen to the clarets.
