Football - Double injury boost for Royals

Hope Akpan and Danny Guthrie have been passed fit for Reading when they host Sheffield Wednesday.

PA Sport Report

Akpan suffered a shin injury during last weekend's 3-0 win at Millwall but has resumed training and will be available.

Fellow midfielder Guthrie is also fit after a month out with a calf problem and will probably be on the bench with manager Nigel Adkins set to name an unchanged team for the sixth match in succession.

Wayne Bridge and Sean Morrison (both knee) are due back this month but will not be risked just yet while Mikele Leigertwood (ankle), Jason Roberts (hip) and Jem Karacan (cruciate) are still missing.
