Football - Reda not ready to face Rams

Sheffield Wednesday defender Reda Johnson has been ruled out of the next two matches and will miss the home game with Derby.

Johnson is struggling with an on-going ankle problem and played no part in last week's home win over Brighton.

But manager Dave Jones has no new major injury or suspension worries and is expected to name the same side for the second week running.

Midfielder Jeremy Helan, on loan from Manchester City, started against the Seagulls following his return for a second spell, while striker Leroy Lita, borrowed from Swansea, made his first start for the club in the same match and should also continue.

Defender Joe Mattock, winger Jermaine Johnson and midfielder Rhys McCabe are all pushing for recalls, but may have to settle for a place on the substitutes' bench again as the Owls chase their third straight league victory.
