Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri is due to face trial today accused of racially aggravated harassment.

The 29-year-old also faces a charge of using threatening words and behaviour following a mass brawl between players at a pre-season friendly with Mansfield last July.

The Argentinian denied both charges when he previously appeared at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court.
