Barnsley captain Paul Reid could miss the Christmas period with an ankle ligament injury.

Reid was injured during the 2-0 defeat to Leicester at the weekend, with the skipper taken from the field before half-time with a badly cut ankle and ligament damage. 

The 24-year-old central defender is now a major doubt for Saturday's trip to QPR and the Boxing Day match against Burnley.

Reid will have to wait on an assessment of the injury which will determine how long the player will be out for.

Furthermore, Bobby Hassell has been hit with the same stomach bug that struck down team-mate Antony Kay last week.
