Reading striker Jason Roberts is determined to make a quick recovery from a calf injury.

Jason Roberts: Eyes quick return to action

The 34-year-old has been out of action for the past month and insists that he is doing all he can to resume playing.

"I'm doing all sorts of stuff. Pilates, core work . . .everything," Roberts told the Reading Post.

"I've been doing loads. My recovery from the injury has been slower than I would have liked.

"But when you're injured it can give you the opportunity to improve on other things too."

However, Roberts is not willing to risk suffering the same problem again by rushing his comeback.

"We've taken that opportunity at the club and I've been working on other correctional things in my body to come back in the best possible shape," he explained.

"I need to make sure when I come back that I'm not coming off with the same issue again.

"I haven't had a calf problem before, but luckily I haven't missed many games. I'm a really bad injured player because I just have no patience."

Roberts joined Reading from Blackburn in January 2012.
