Team news & predicted XIs - Sheff Wed vs Reading

As we look forward to the game at Sheffield Wednesday tonight, we take a look at the team news and predicted line ups for both teams.

Wednesday will be sweating on the fitness of key talisman Fernando Forestieri, who has missed previous games due to injury. They are however set to welcome back defensive pairing Glenn Loovens and Tom Lees from injury, which comes at a good time, following
Vincent Sasso's red card against Villa.

The injuries have certainly mounted up for Carlos Carvahal's side, with winger Marco Matias and Kieran Lee missing through injury, while Sam Hutchinson, Almen Abdi and on-loan Callum McManaman also out. Striker Gary Hooper could return to the bench, but won't be fit enough to start.

Reading are also set to welcome back their first choice centre back pairing, as skipper Paul McShane should be ready after coming off against Prestion, and Liam Moore will be back after picking up a hamstring issue. Fellow defender Tiago Ilori is still on the treatment table.

Winger Callum Harriott is now back in training after a three-month absence, but will be too early for him. Midfielder Jordan Mutch is a doubt after coming off against Preston with a knock, while Liam Kelly is also a doubt. Stephen Quinn suffered another set back in his return from a long-term injury.

Preidcted line ups:

Sheffield Wednesday - 4-4-2:
Westwood; Hunt, Lees, Loovens, Fox; Wallace, Bannan, Jones, Reach; Winnall, Rhodes.

Reading - 4-3-3: Al-Habsi; Gunter, McShane, Moore, Obita; Van den Berg, Williams, Swift; McCleary, Kermorgant, Beerens.
