Footymad preview History of the Barnsley v Reading fixture

Reading face a trip to Barnsley at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Royals will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Oakwell was less than a year ago, in March 2011, with Reading inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Tykes in a Championship match.
