Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to pick up much-needed points when they return to action on Saturday afternoon against Reading.
The Owls were beaten 2-1 by relegation-threatened rivals Rotherham United in their most recent match, which means they’re sat 23rd in the Championship table, and seven points adrift of safety heading into their next match.
It doesn’t get any easier for them either, as they take on promotion-chasing Reading at the Madejski Stadium. The Royals are sat fifth in the second-tier standings, and will be looking to build on a 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers in midweek.
Was it Adam Reach or Tom Lees that did these things?
Newly-appointed Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore has named his starting XI ahead of the game, as they go in search of three points on Saturday.
📋 Here's our line up this afternoon! #REASHW
XI: Wildsmith, Palmer, Lees, Börner, Urhoghide, Harris, Hutchinson, Bannan, Shaw, Windass, Paterson
Subs: Jackson, Dunkley, Penney, Pelupessy, Brown, Reach, Kachunga, Marriott, Rhodes

Kadeem Harris comes into the starting XI to replace Adam Reach, although the likes of Elias Kachunga, Jack Marriott and Jordan Rhodes have to make do with a place on the substitutes bench.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on Moore’s latest team selection for this one.

Paterson again. Dear me.

Why no Rhodes, give him half the chances the other night and he scored at least 2. Paterson is not good enough

How has Paterson kept his place ? He is not a striker. If you watch Rhodes he makes runs that Paterson doesn’t think of making !!

Apart from Dunkley, there’s not one sub that would improve that team. That’s how dire how squad is

Windass and Patterson up front ?? Awful footballers https://t.co/YE1N2Q0Ii9

Paterson stays in the team after missing 72920 chances makes sense https://t.co/hb1dMC55di

Not impressed, the mentality of those players has gone. But it’s all we have, go one nil down then wave the white flag squad!
