Football - Duo set for Royals return

Alex McCarthy and Billy Sharp could return to the Reading squad for the trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

PA Sport Report

Goalkeeper McCarthy has missed the last two matches with a knee injury and striker Sharp has managed just three minutes of action since joining on loan from Southampton in September due to a groin problem.

But both players returned to training earlier this week and should be available to manager Nigel Adkins.

However, Wayne Bridge is a doubt with a knee injury while Royston Drenthe, Danny Williams (both foot), Jem Karacan (cruciate), Jason Roberts (hip) and Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) are still out.
