28 February 2020

Matt Miazga returns from injury and comes in to start straight away against the Tykes, lining up alongside Morrison in the heart of defence against a Barnsley side who have won their last three Sky Bet Championship matches - with Liam Moore missing out completely with illness this weekend.

Omar Richards drops to the bench, with Jordan Obita coming up into the starting line-up to flank the Reading backline at Madejski Stadium.

Andy Rinomhota starts in midfield in place of Pelé, Michael Olise is in from the start and George Pușcaș, who was unable to come on in midweek with a knee issue, is fit to lead the line up front against our visitors from South Yorkshire.

Garath McCleary is among the substitutes for the Royals, as is Ayub Masika, who could come on for his home debut for the club on Saturday afternoon.

For the visitors, top scorers Cauley Woodrow and Conor Chaplin start - with 27 goals between them so far this season.

There's a new look to the Royals on Saturday afternoon, here's how both teams line up:

Reading: Rafael, Yiadom, Miazga, Morrison (c), Obita, Rinomhota, Swift, Ejaria, Olise, Méïté, Pușcaș.
Subs: Walker, Baldock, McCleary, Blackett, Masika, Richards, Pelé.

Barnsley: Collins, J Williams, Sollbauer, Halme, Oduor, Ritzmaier, Ludewig, Mowatt (c), Brown, Chaplin, Woodrow.
