Injuries? Doesn't matter anyway
If chances of getting a result down at vicarage road tonight were slim, then they have just gone on an emergency diet as Barnsley are set to be without Brian Howard.
The reds have found it difficult to score in recent games and have left it up to the influential midfielder to scrap for goals. But for tonight a makeshift midfield may see Sam Togwell and Diego Leon step into the line-up, with Martin Devaney out after taking a knock on his thigh at Wembley.
Jon Macken and Lewin Nyatanga are available after their cup-tie, no doubt Macken will step straight back into the side, at the expense of who? Odejayi? Let`s hope so.
On Monday the reds had sold 70 tickets for the trip to Watford, yes SEVENTY, after 34,000 glory hunters had made the trip to Wembley.
An away win for Barnsley looks as likely as a return to Parliament for Margaret Thatcher.
See you at Vicarage Road.
