David Flitcroft takes his inform Barnsley team to the Riverside where they will face promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough.

Vital Quotes:

Oldtimetyke 'Great win at Blackpool and I dont think we will get beat at the Riverside, they have struggled recently'

Middlesbrough Team News:

Tony Mowbray is likely to again be without Ishmael Miller and Scott McDonald, Julio Arca is also still out after toe surgery.

Player to watch: Kieron Dyer

Dyer will have to be near his best as Perkins and JOB look to run riot in the middle of the park.

Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley have no new injury worries for the trip north. The only players out are Jim McNulty and Stephen Dawson.

Dawse is said to be making good progress, though Flicker is not going to rush him back whilst Kelvin Etuhu is doing such a solid job in front of the back four.

The main headache for Flicker is up top with 2 in 2 super sub Jason Scotland pushing for a starting role, i do feel that it will be Daggers and Harewood leading the line again. I believe Flicker has a strategy for phasing Jason Scotland into the team and building his fitness. Who would you look to start?

Player to watch: Stephen Foster

I feel that Foster will have to be at his brilliant best up against the big Boro striker Jutkiewicz.
