Neville blow for Toffees
Everton face being without captain Phil Neville for up to two months after the midfielder underwent a knee operation.
Moyes admitted that Neville's influence was missed as Reading fought back to win their first league game of the season.
"He (Neville) had an operation on his knee yesterday that could keep him out for six to eight weeks," he said.
"His leadership was missed but we were missing quite a lot of senior players today and you could see that by our bench. Thomas Hitzlsperger did OK, not too bad."
