Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley are without Scott Goldbourne and Stephen Dawson while Kelvin Etuhu could make a return to the squad.

Ryan Tunnicliffe is set for a home debut.

If Flicker fails to land a left wing back in time then I am hearing noises that he will play 4-4-2 rather than the 3-5-2 that has served us so well in recent weeks.

I personally would persevere with 3-5-2 regardless but assuming no left wing back is signed the team I am hearing will be:

GK Steele
RB Delap
CB Cranie
CB McNulty
LB Kennedy
RM O`Brien
CM Tunnicliffe
CM Perkins
LM O`Grady
ST Dagnall
ST Harewood

Subs
Alnwick
Scotland
Cywka
Mellis
Etuhu
Foster
Wiseman

Player to watch: Tunnicliffe

First chance to see the Man Utd player for most fans.

Bolton Team News:

Bolton are sweating on Chris Eagles, Tyrone Mears and Mark Davies.

Craig Davies returns to Oakwell for the first time since leaving in January.

Player to watch: Craig Davies

I can picture him scoring now. I just hope he doesn`t.

Match Facts & Stats
