Match Preview

Guthrie makes Royals return Danny Guthrie returns to the Reading squad for the visit of Wigan. Guthrie missed last weekend's 1-0 win at Huddersfield through suspension after collecting five yellow cards this season. Fellow midfielder Chris Baird will also be in contention if he can prove his fitness following a sprained ankle. But the Royals, who will kick off in fifth spot, are still without defenders Wayne Bridge and Sean Morrison (both knee), midfielders Jem Karacan (cruciate) and Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and striker Jason Roberts (hip). Boss Uwe Rosler has vowed to shuffle his pack again for Wigan's trip, jokingly suggesting he will bring in as many as eight new faces to the starting line-up. A Latics XI featuring five changes were beating Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday night until persistent downpours forced the match to be abandoned at Hillsborough, with the likes of Grant Holt, Ivan Ramis and Emmerson Boyce not even in the matchday 18. Striker Holt, via his Twitter account, assured fans he was being careful with a knee injury from earlier in the season while Callum McManaman, who was so impressive against Bolton last Sunday, is another likely to return with Rosler insisting he has specific plans in mind for the Madejski Stadium clash. Goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi (knee) was on the bench in Sheffield and is nearing a return to full fitness, giving Rosler a quandary over whether to pick him ahead of Scott Carson, while Gary Caldwell (hip) played for the development squad on Monday but Shaun Maloney (shoulder) and Juan Carlos Garcia (ankle) remain sidelined.
