Tough test for Owls against play-off challengers

It’s a second successive home game for the Owls this evening when Reading come to Hillsborough.

We go into the match above bottom club, Derby, on goal difference after their draw with Coventry last night but knowing that victory could take us above Wycombe in 22nd and possibly only one point from Forest, who are just out of the relegation places in 21st position.

Wycombe entertain Stoke tonight while Forest are at home to Watford.

Wednesday report no new injury problems after Saturday’s goalless draw with Stoke but will be without keeper Keiren Westwood, still sidelined with a groin injury, and have the suspended Josh Windass serving the final game of his three-match ban.

Tony Pulis will be looking for his first win as Owls boss after two draws and a defeat so far and for an improvement on our record of just three goals in seven home games this season, that total including a penalty and an own goal.

However, It promises to be a tough test against a Reading side who sit just outside the play-off places on goal difference and have former Wednesday striker Lucas Joao as their top scorer so far this campaign with 12 goals.

The game is being screened live on Sky Sports, kick off 7.45pm.
