Footymad preview History of the Reading v Barnsley fixture

Barnsley face a trip to Reading at Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Tykes will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 17 and win only 5 of the 33 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in September 2010, with Reading running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Championship match.
