Football - Guthrie banned for Royals

Reading will be without Danny Guthrie through suspension when they host struggling Barnsley.

PA Sport Report

Midfielder Guthrie starts a two-match ban after he was shown a 10th yellow card of the season during Saturday's 2-1 win at Birmingham.

Boss Nigel Adkins is short of options in the centre with Danny Williams (knee), Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and Jem Karacan (cruciate) still missing so winger Jobi McAnuff could move infield.

Sean Morrison (knee) will step up his comeback by playing for the reserves on Monday while fellow defender Wayne Bridge (knee) is not quite ready to return.
