Vaughan and Wickham set for loan debuts


Eight Cats set for action.

David Vaughan will look to make his Nottingham Forest debut as the Reds host Vaughan’s former club Blackpool on Saturday in the Championship.

The Welsh international joined Forest on loan this week and could make his debut at the City Ground at the weekend.

A win against the Tangerines could send Billy Davies’ side as high as fourth in the second tier.

Meanwhile, Connor Wickham could make his second debut for Sheffield Wednesday after joining the Owls on Friday.

The England U21 international has joined up with Dave Jones’ side until January 1 and he’ll hope to feature in the Owls’ home game with Reading on Saturday.

Wednesday could climb out of the relegation zone with a win, while Reading could move fourth with the three points.

Elsewhere, Alfred N’Diaye’s Eskisehirspor travel to Gençlerbirliği in the Turkish Super League on Monday.

The Red Lightnings could move as high as second in the Turkish top flight if they pick up their fourth consecutive win.

In League Two, Jordan Pickford’s Burton Albion could go top with a victory over fellow high-flyers Morecambe at the Pirelli Stadium.

The England U19 international has been in fine form for the Brewers and has played a key part in a change of fortunes which has seen the Staffordshire side win their last three games.

Billy Knott is also in League Two action as Wycombe Wanderers travel to improving Accrington Stanley.

The Chairboys lost at home to Bury in their last game but could return to the play-off places with a win over James Beattie’s Stanley.

In non-league, Joel Dixon, Liam Marrs and Adam Mitchell could feature in the Skrill North for their respective new clubs.

Dixon’s Workington host Gainsborough Trinity whilst Marrs’ Boston United travel to fellow promotion hopefuls Brackley Town and Mitchell’s Harrogate Town host Oxford City.

Danny Graham is ineligible for Hull’s clash with Sunderland.
