Barrett makes full debut, Hal and Dickie on the bench

7 May 2016

Team news for our last game of the season at Ewood Park

17-year-old Josh Barrett makes his full professional debut at Ewood Park this afternoon, starting for Brian McDermott's men in the final game of the 2015-16 season.

The Academy product made an impressive Madejski Stadium bow from the bench last weekend, so is handed a start today - while 20-year-old centre-back Rob Dickie is involved in the first team squad for the first time in his career. He returns from a title win with Cheltenham on loan to take a place on the Royals' bench.

Hal Robson-Kanu is fit enough to make a return to the squad, starting on the bench as one of seven Academy graduates involved in the 18 this afternoon.

Blackburn: Steele, Duffy, Hanley (c), Kilgallon, Marshall, Lenihan, Lowe, Grimes, J Gomez, Bennett, Graham.
Subs: Raya, Henley, Ward, Williamson, Evans, Conway, Jackson.

Reading: Al-Habsi, McCleary, Gunter, Cooper, McShane (c), Norwood, Quinn, Williams, Barrett, Kermorgant, Rakels. 
Subs: Bond, Watson, Dickie, Evans, Kuhl, Stacey, Robson-Kanu.
