Barnsley v Wigan

Barnsley entertain FA cup holders Wigan Athletic on the opening day of the new season.

I don`t remember being this excited for the new season for a long time and I hope other Barnsley fans are feeling the same.

Come On You Reds

Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley will be without Kelvin Etuhu and Paul Digby who have hamstring and calf injuries.

The reds new summer signings will be eager for a starting spot in this one to get their Barnsley careers up and running.

Player to watch: Jacob Mellis

I`m predicting a big year for Mellis

Wigan Team News:

Thomas Rogne is out with a back problem.

New arrivals Leon Barnett and Juan Carlos Garcia could start.

Player to watch: Grant Holt

A great buy for this level.
