Football - Duo set for Royals return

Jobi McAnuff and Nick Blackman could return for Reading's trip to Barnsley.

PA Sport Report

Winger McAnuff has not played since mid-August due to an ankle injury and striker Blackman missed Saturday's win over Birmingham with a swollen knee, but boss Nigel Adkins hopes to have both available.

Garath McCleary took a whack on the ankle which forced him off against the Blues and will be checked over while fellow midfielder Hal Robson-Kanu also limped off, but that was only cramp.

Danny Williams and Royston Drenthe (both foot) are likely to miss out again along with long-term absentees Jem Karacan (knee), Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and Jason Roberts (hip).
