Barnsley vs Fleetwood preview
Last Updated: 12/04/19 3:22pm
Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel has no fresh injury worries ahead of his side's League One clash with Fleetwood on Saturday.
The Tykes saw their 20-match unbeaten run come to an end after losing 3-1 at Burton last weekend and the German head coach could rotate his squad as they look to get their promotion bid back on track.
Stendel could opt to restore midfielder Mike-Steven Bahre into the starting line-up after coming on as a substitute for the last two matches, likewise with forward Victor Adeboyejo, while defender Ben Roberts could push for a starting berth after dropping to the bench at the Pirelli Stadium. Striker Kieffer Moore (concussion) and midfielder Kenneth Dougall (broken leg) are long-term absentees and have already been ruled out for the season.

Fleetwood will be without forward Jack Sowerby for the trip to Oakwell. Sowerby was forced off with a hamstring injury in the second half of their 2-2 draw with Southend last week and could be ruled out for the season.
Striker Harrison Biggins failed to reappear after half-time in the same match with a foot problem and, despite an x-ray showing no signs of a fracture, he is unlikely to feature. Midfielder Jason Holt has returned to parent club Rangers after injury ruled him out for the rest of the campaign, while defender Craig Morgan and midfielder Dean Marney could be in contention after returning to training.
