Footymad preview History of the Reading v Barnsley fixture

Reading prepare to entertain Barnsley at Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Royals are clearly on top, having won 17 and lost only 5 of the 33 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Madejski Stadium was less than a year ago, in September 2010, with Reading running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Championship match.
