Barnsley v Wigan

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

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.

I`m predicting a big year for Mellis
