Hull v Barnsley
Saturday 26th January 2013
Barnsley travel to Hull in the fourth round of the FA cup following a mini revival under new boss David Flitcroft.
Only a tenner, I might even go.
Hull Team News:
Eldin Jakupovic is likely to start in goal for Hull as David Stockdale is cup-tied.
Sone Aluko, Matty Fryatt and Joe Dudgeon are also expected to miss out.
Player to watch: McShane
Another former red which seems to be a popular subject this week.
Barnsley Team News:
Barnsley will be without Stephen Dawson following his injury last week. Jim O`Brien is likely to come in as his replacement after recovering from his injury.
Jim McNulty is doubtful so expect only the one change from last week as Flicker continues with this formation that has served him well so far.
Player to watch: Perkins
Barnsley will rely even more heavily on him now that his midfield partner Dawson won`t be at his side.
Match Facts & Stats
This is the 100th meeting between the two clubs. The record stands at Hull 39, Barnsley 38 and 22 draws.
Hull are hoping for their third successive victory over Barnsley.
This is Barnsley`s first appearance in the fourth round since 2008. That year we reached the semi-finals.
The reds last away win in the FA cup was at Anfield. Just saying.
Let`s have your predictions, I`m useless at it.
