Midfielder returns

17 December 2013

Guthrie back from ban

Royals midfielder Danny Guthrie is back from a one-match suspension as we face Wigan at home this coming weekend.

The 26-year-old sat out our 1-0 win at Huddersfield but is now back available to manager Nigel Adkins.

We began the game with a diamond formation; Danny Williams as the deepest midfielder; Jobi McAnuff and Jordan Obita as the wider players and Royston Drenthe behind the strikers.

We showed adaptability to switch to a more orthodox four-man midfield later in the game, and Adkins praised McAnuff's 'outstanding' display in the middle of the park.

Adkins told the press after the game that midfielder Chris Baird is getting closer to a return to action and may play over the Christmas period, all being well.

Saturday's opponents will be without long-term absentees Shaun Maloney, Ali Al-Habsi and Gary Caldwell.

Tickets for the game start at £25 adults and £10 children - buy now at Madejski Stadium, at our Oracle Store, online at or by phone on 0844 249 1871.
