Liam Moore back from ban to boost Reading against Sheffield Wednesday

Reading welcome back Liam Moore for their Sky Bet Championship clash at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

The defender was suspended for last weekend's trip to Fulham, where the Royals' run of five straight wins came to a shuddering halt as they lost 5-0.

Moore is back for the visit of the Owls but Jaap Stam will instead be without Danny Williams, who was sent off in the thrashing at Craven Cottage.

Stam is also still without the injured pair of Stephen Quinn (knee) and John Swift (ankle).

Wednesday will be without suspended striker Fernando Forestieri, who starts a three-match ban following his dismissal in last week's home win against Preston.

Head coach Carlos Carvalhal must check on the fitness of wingers Ross Wallace (back) and Will Buckley (shoulder), plus defender Glenn Loovens (knee), who were all forced out of the action last Saturday.

Striker Steven Fletcher has been carrying an ankle problem in recent weeks, but is hoping to return to the starting line-up in Forestieri's absence alongside Lucas Joao.

David Jones replaced Loovens last weekend and could start if the Dutchman misses out, while fellow defender Daniel Pudil is also pushing for a recall.
