Ahead of the game | Heading up to Hillsborough...

A preview of this weekend's fixture!

20 April 2018

A win this weekend would be a big step closer to safety - but that'll be a big ask away at Sheffield Wednesday.

Injury updates from the gaffer ahead of Wednesday

20 April 2018

Both sides would have preferred a season a bit more like last year; however both are targetting a strong end to the current campaign to take a bit of momentum into the summer break.

The Royals have no fresh injury worries, although no returning numbers either.  Leandro Bacuna serves the second game of his suspension following his dismissal at Fulham in our last away outing.

Wednesday, who lost five straight games over February and March, have rekindled a bit of form recently and have taken victories in four of the last six outings... with little left to play for and the freedom that allows, the Owls aren't to be taken lightly.

Jeremy Simpson takes charge in South Yorkshire - the second time he's overseen a Royals game this season.  The previous time was up the road at Leeds United, when former White Mo Barrow earned the Royals three points against his former side.

Shaun Hudson and Michael George man the flags, while Graham Salisbury is fourth official.


According to EFL title sponsors Sky Bet, Sheffield Wednesday are favourites at 13/10 and the Royals are outsiders at 21/10, with a draw priced 23/10.

Yann Kermorgant was our last goalscorer when we drew with Sunderland, and he's 9/4 to net at any time.  Meanwhile Mo Barrow is 2/1 to grab another goal at any point of the game.
