Reading are sweating over the fitness of club captain Andy Yiadom for Saturday's trip to Barnsley following his 'niggle' sustained against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old, who recently celebrated his 200th league appearance for the Royals, came off with 10 minutes remaining at the Memorial Stadium.

He has started the last two league fixtures but had sat the previous two out for a controversial sending-off awarded against Derby County.

Speaking after the victory over the Pirates, Ruben Selles was quizzed on the availability of Yiadom for Saturday's trip to Oakwell.

"It is a niggle that he has had problems [with] during the season," he commented. "Hopefully, it is nothing, but we will need to check tomorrow."

If deemed fit, it will be a return to a familiar setting for the right-back having spent two seasons with the Tykes between 2016 and 2018.

Playing 66 times and departing following their relegation from the Championship in 2018, Yiadom immediately joined Reading and has been a mainstay ever since.

The Royals have drawn 1-1 at Oakwell on the last four visits, all of which took place in the second tier.

February 1981 is the last time the two sides, currently battling at opposite ends of the League One table, met in the third tier.
