Barnsley entertain managerless Blackburn in a much win game for the reds.

'Barnsley need to start converting possession to goals and learn how to defend set pieces'

Barnsley Team News:

Stephen Foster is available following suspension.

David Perkins and Akos Buzsaky are injury doubts.

Player to watch: David Perkins

His energy and all round play was badly missed when he came off against Birmingham. He has become the reds most important player and we need him to be fit.

Blackburn Team News:

Reserve team coach Gary Bowyer takes charge of Rovers following the sacking of Henning Berg.

Player to watch: Jordan Rhodes

The Rovers striker scored a last minute winner in the match at Ewood Park earlier in the season.

Match Facts & Stats

Blackburn are hoping to record their first double against the reds for 24 years.

Barnsley have won only two of their last 18 home games against Blackburn.

21 points from 24 games is Barnsley's worst return since the premier league season.

Barnsley have the worst attack in the division with only a goal a game and only convert 1 in 11 chances.

Match Prediction:

It's a team we could beat with the run they've been on but whilst we continue to concede goals from set pieces and are so woeful in front of goal I can't see anything other than defeat.

Next Fixtures:

Away at Peterborough on new years day.

Visit the forum for the hill sacked article as there is a slight problem with the main page at this moment in time.
