Ex Red Devils With Reds

Tuesday night`s match at Oakwell will see three ex Manchester United players line up against their old club for Barnsley.

Barnsley`s manager Mark Robins is known nationwide as "the man who saved Alex Ferguson`s job" with a last minute goal against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup in 1990 but tomorrow night he will be trying to dump his old boss out of the very same competition as he leads his new side out at Oakwell this time as manager.

Robins spent six years at Old Trafford, making 48 appearances and scoring eleven goals.

Another ex-Manchester United striker looking to upset his former employers on Tuesday night is Jonathan Macken. Jon started his career at Old Trafford signing as a professional in 1996. He stayed there for one season but never made a senior appearance.

He found better fortune at Preston North End, whom he joined in 1997, making 189 appearances for the Lilywhites and scoring 63 goals, before signing for Premiership side Manchester City in 2002 for 5m.

The third ex-Red Devil in Barnsley`s ranks is Luke Steele, who signed for Manchester United in 2002 from his hometown club Peterborough United. Steele stayed on the books there for four years, spending a season on loan at Coventry City in 2004/05.

He never made a senior appearance for Manchester United. Steele impressed Barnsley with heroic performances in the F.A. Cup ties against Liverpool and Chelsea.
