Duo back for Oakwell clashKenny Jackett's left-sided options will tonight be increased by the return of Shane Lowry and Martyn Woolford. Lowry is back following a two-game suspension with Woolford available to play again after being Cup tied for the match against Aston Villa.
Rob Hulse's loan deal at The Den was confirmed this morning, and he could go straight into a squad which will be missing Nathan Tyson (ankle), who is doing rehabilitation work for the injury picked up during his debut against Burnley. The game may also come too soon for Scott Malone (back), though the left-back has returned to training.
For Barnsley, new signing Jason Scotland looks set to go straight into the squad for the match at Oakwell. Defenders Bobby Hassell and Scott Wiseman may feature but could require late fitness tests, with Stephen Dawson (ankle) and Jim McNulty (hamstring) likely to miss out.
