Arsenal have confirmed that Jack Wilshere will continue his rehabilitation from ankle surgery with another run out for the club’s under-21s.
The England midfielder wasn’t included in Arsene Wenger’s squad for the win against Burnley, but will captain Steve Gatting’s side when they face Reading at the Emirates this evening.
The Young Guns have it all to do in the final weeks of the season if they are to secure a quick return to the top tier. They’re currently fourth in Division 2, one point behind Reading, but should be buoyed by last week’s 4-1 trouncing of Stoke City.
Abou Diaby and Serge Gnabry, also returning from long lay-offs, add further first team gloss while the likes of Krystian Bielik and Dan Crowley are also due to start.
If you fancy watching the match this evening, tickets are on general sale until 4pm, priced at £4 adults and £2 for concessions.
