Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Miazga, Yedlin and more

The EFL Championship season rolls on this weekend as Matt Miazga will try to make his first league start of 2020.

Reading heads into Saturday’s showdown with Nottingham Forest on a seven-match unbeaten run in all competitions. Miazga last started a league match for Mark Bowen’s side on Dec. 11th, but recently captained the Royals in a 2-2 FA Cup draw vs. Blackpool last Sunday. Miazga has made 17 appearances this season in all competitions while on loan for the second consecutive time at Reading. The good run of form for the Royals has them sitting in 14th place, but visiting Forest is in fourth place and riding a three-match winning streak in league play.

Elsewhere, DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United face a tough test against Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Duane Holmes and Derby County take on Middlesbrough. The Liga MX Clausura season kicks off this weekend with William Yarbrough and Club Leon in action.

  1. Gio scored for Dortmund vs Feynoord in a friendly, started alongside a lot of BvB regulars.
    Ledezma played the 2nd half for PSV against AS Eupen (13th place in Belgium) from the numbers of the players on the pitch with him appeared to be deep reserves.
    Dillon Powers has joined Ian Harkes at Dundee United

  2. actually, Pulisic wil not be in Lampards plan for a while after coming down with what’s being described as a “nasty” abductor injury. It’s being reported CP will be out at least through the rest of January, and probably into February smh…..the amount of injuries that our NT players accrue is beyond worrisome!
