Barnsley striker Leroy Lita is expected to make his league debut for the club after his midweek appearance in the home defeat to Crewe.

Winger Keith Treacy is hoping to make his first league start for Barnsley and 16-year-old right wing-back James Bree, who made his first start for the Reds against Crewe, could make his full league debut.

Defender Joe Dudgeon is expected to return after being rested in midweek, but winger Dale Jennings sits out the second game of his three-match ban.

Summer signing Kane Hemmings is not yet ready for first-team action following an ankle injury.
