Barnsley will be looking to bounce back from their 6 - 0 hammering at the hands of Charlton. Barnsley boss David Flitcroft will need to lift the players for this one in what is a must win game if the reds are to stay in the Championship.

Vital Quotes:Oldtimetyke

Stick with Flicker and the lads. After every set back we have bounced back.

Barnsley Team News:

Stephen Foster has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a calf strain.

Stephen Dawson and Tom Kennedy are suspended.

Martin Cranie will return to the starting 11. The only other fit defenders are Bobby Hassell and Scott Wiseman (who was limping at the end of the Charlton game). Rob Edwards could be fit enough to play.

The squad is very light for this one and your guess is as good as mine with who will play and who is fit enough to play. We need Etuhu fit for this one.

Player to watch: Kelvin Etuhu

The key man in the middle of the park, Kelv was badly missed on saturday. If Yaya Etuhu plays i feel we will get something.

Derby Team News:

Craig Bryson, Jamie Ward and Jeff Hendrick are doubts for Derby while Paul Coutts and Conor Sammon face the axe.

Player to watch: Jamie Ward

The leading scorer and goal getter.
