U23s back to winning ways as Watson returns

27 November 2017

The Royals get straight back to league action on Tuesday night as Barnsley are the latest visitors to Madejski Stadium in the Championship.

With two battling draws in the past week against Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday, Jaap Stam and his side will be hoping to turn one point into three against the Tykes under the Madejski Stadium lights.

Paul Heckingbottom's side are only separated from the Royals by goal difference as it stands in the Championship, so a win would see Reading leapfrog Tuesday's opponents in the league standings.

Should Liam Kelly play a part for the Royals against Barnsley, he will be making his 50th appearance in a senior shirt after graduating from the Academy! 

It's sure to be another tough match-up on Tuesday evening, with the visitors hoping to avenge a 2-0 defeat against Leeds United at the weekend.

Championship sponsors, Sky Bet, have made the Royals odds-on at 19/20 for three points on Tuesday night, with visitors Barnsley available at 14/5 for the win, and the draw is at 5/2.

Liam Moore is already on his best goalscoring return for a season, with three goals, and he is available at 13/2 to add to his tally against Barnsley. Yann Kermorgant has returned from injury and now has his sights on his first goal this season, and he is priced at 6/4 to score on Tuesday night.

NB: Odds are subject to change, and are correct at time of publication.


Darren Bond will be in charge at Madejski Stadium in his first Royals match of the season when the two sides walk out on Tuesday night. He has averaged around 3.5 cautions per match so far this term, with the red card being brandished just the once.
