Barnsley entertain Burnley in the FA cup third round as the search for a new manager continues.
What are the club playing at? No manager appointed yet! Why do we take so long to get things sorted at Oakwell?
Marcus Tudgay has returned to Nottingham Forest after his loan expired on the 3rd. The club were hoping to extend his loan but a broken collarbone means he will be out for 6 - 8 weeks.
Craig Davies is currently in talks with Bolton and could be left out so that any proposed deal doesn`t come under threat.
Temporary boss Flitcroft will be hoping to have some reinforcements available again in the attacking third but the likes of Mellis are still doubtful.
Expect the Barnsley keeper to be busy.
Burnley striker Charlie Austin is likely to miss the game so that gives the reds half a chance.
Chance to shine with Austin injured.
What line up and formation do you think Flitcroft will go for? Having missed the Peterborough game myself I am told he shuffled from 5-3-2 and 4-4-2 with neither system paying off and the team lacking any attacking threat.
I am led to believe he will start with wing backs as he feels it`s the way forward with the squad he has available. The personal is set to change though. I am told the line-up could look like this.
Steele; Cranie, Foster, Kennedy; Stones, O`Brien, Dawson, Perkins, Goldbourne; Dagnall, Harerwood.
Paul Tierney is the man in charge.
All I can see is another defeat. I`m going 2 - 1 to Burnley.
The big one at home to Leeds back in Championship action. Let`s hope and pray we have a manager in by then.
