Adam Reed

Weekend loan preview

by Ashley Houghton

We take a look at where loan stars are headed.

Connor Wickham’s Sheffield Wednesday welcome Crystal Palace to Hillsborough as the Owls look to extend their Championship unbeaten run to seven.

Wickham started his first game for Wednesday in Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Birmingham and will be looking to grab his first goal for the Yorkshire side on Saturday.

Ahmed Elmohamady will be looking to continue his impressive run of form for Hull City as the Tigers aim to close the gap on Championship leaders Cardiff to two points.

Hull have won their last three and Elmohamady has played a vital part with two goals in his last three games.

Elsewhere, Ji Dong-Won’s Augsburg face a crucial relegation six-pointer against Hoffenheim in the German Bundesliga.

Defeat for Ji’s side would see them fall four points behind their nearest relegation rivals.

Meanwhile, Adam Reed’s Portsmouth travel to Oldham Athletic and Johnny Maddison will be hoping to feature for Crawley as the Red Devils travel to Leyton Orient in League One.

Billy Knott is a doubt for Woking after picking up a hamstring injury in last Saturday’s defeat to Newport County. The Cardinals are at Southport this weekend.
