However, the 20-year-old admitted that although he was disappointed not to start, Rodgers made "the right decision".
He told the Reading Chronicle: "We have loads of games coming up with about six matches every month right up to the end of February. But obviously I want to play.
"Hopefully I'll be back in for Scunthorpe this weekend but it's up to the gaffer. He knows what he's doing and I just have to get on with it."
