Reading face Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow at Hillsborough with Mark Bowen’s side looking to pick up their first league victory since New Year’s Day.

Bowen has a number of injuries to contend with ahead of the long trip to South Yorkshire.

Lucas Joao

The former Sheffield Wednesday man remains out after picking up a hamstring injury in Reading’s last league triumph.

Matt Miazga

Miazga remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Chris Gunter

Chris Gunter is out of Saturday’s game and is unlikely to return before the end of the month.

Lucas Boye

Boye’s was ruled out at the start of the month for 3-4 weeks so tomorrow’s game will be too soon for his return and he’s unlikely to be fit for next weeks trip to Elland Road, barring a quick recovery.

Tom Mcintyre

Mcintyre remains on the treatment table and won’t be back until next month.

Andy Yiadom did return from injury on Wednesday night, although it’s not clear whether he’ll be risked for a second 90 minutes in four days.

Ayub Timbe Masika may push for a spot on the bench, as the Kenyan loanee continues to build his match fitness.
