Getting back in is Gunnar be hard - midfielder

Last updated : 06 October 2010

Reading midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson has conceded that he will struggle to win his place back in the side when he returns from injury. Gunnarsson is out after he pulled a thigh muscle in training and has seen left-back Chris Armstrong return from 13 months out with a knee injury to take his place in the centre of midfield. The Icelander said: "It will be difficult for me to get back in. "There are a lot of good players in that position, but it is a long season and we will get injuries and suspensions. We need everyone ready. "Chris has been very good - not only because he has been playing in a different position to usual, but also because he was out for such a long time. "He has slotted into midfield without any problems. It's great for us and improves the squad. It's like signing a new player."
