Team news | Beerens, Williams & Moore start

17 March 2017

Team news ahead of our clash with the Owls

Manager Jaap Stam has made three changes to the side that were beaten at Preston last weekend, bringing in Roy Beerens, Liam Moore and Danny Williams to start at Hillsborough.

Lewis Grabban takes a place on the substitutes' bench, while Jordon Mutch and Paul McShane - both of whom came off the pitch with injuries at Deepdale on Saturday - miss out.

Joseph Mendes and Tennai Watson come into the eighteen, taking substitute roles ahead of tonight's clash with the Owls.

20-year-old keeper George Legg meanwhile is also named as a substitute, replacing the injured Anssi Jaakkola to make his first appearance in a senior team squad for the Royals. Legg was recalled from his loan stint at Hungerford Town earlier this week to travel with the Royals this evening. Fellow Academy keeper Lewis Ward leaves Margate to link up with Hungerford as Legg's replacement.

Sheffield Wednesday: Westwood, Jones, Reach, Loovens (c), Lees, Hunt, Buckley, Bannan, Fox, Winall, Rhodes.
Subs: Wilsmith, Fletcher, McManaman, Palmer, Matias, Semedo, Nuhiu.

Reading: Al-Habsi, Gunter (c), Obita, Moore, Blackett, Van den Berg, Williams, Swift, McCleary, Beerens, Kermorgant.
Subs: Legg, Watson, Oxford, Popa, Meite, Mendes, Grabban.
