Championship side Reading extended their good run of league form with a 1-0 victory over Barnsley at the Select Car Leasing Stadium yesterday afternoon.

John Swift’s strike in the 77th minute after a largely frustrating game proved to be enough to secure all three points for the Royals, having been dominated at the start of the second half with Callum Brittain hitting the post.

Former Crystal Palace centre-back Dann, who was also a star in that match against Mick McCarthy’s men, only started his first game for the second-tier club yesterday after needing to build up his fitness as he arrived on a free transfer in late August.

How did a selection of Reading fans react to his performance yesterday though? Was he rusty? A reliable operator at the heart of defence?
