🗞️ Team News: Barnsley

There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the Barnsley manager Valérien Ismaël to contend with from an otherwise complete set of players. Ben Williams (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out.

🗞️ Team News: Reading

Due to a mostly healthy group, there is only a single fitness problem for the Reading boss Veljko Paunović to contend with. John Swift (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action.

🧠 Prediction

Our assessment here is that Reading will have to work hard as a team to breach the defence of this Barnsley side who will likely score at least once to put them ahead.

We’re therefore seeing a highly competitive game with a 1-0 victory for Barnsley after 90 minutes.

Hopefully it’s a good one.
