Barnsley vs Blackpool preview
Last Updated: 26/04/19 12:08pm
Barnsley head coach Daniel Stendel has virtually a full-strength squad to choose from for the home game against Blackpool.
Stendel has no new injury or suspension concerns following Easter Monday's win at Plymouth, which kept his side in the second automatic-promotion spot in League One.
Striker Kieffer Moore made his second appearance off the bench at Plymouth since recovering from the effects of concussion and is pushing for a start. Midfielder Kenny Dougall is a long-term absentee after breaking his leg in the goalless draw at Doncaster last month.
Blackpool midfielder Matty Virtue is doubtful after being forced out of Monday's home win against Fleetwood. Virtue will be assessed after sustaining a nasty gash in the challenge which led to the dismissal of Fleetwood's Nathan Sheron.
Defender Ollie Turton will also be monitored after missing out on Monday because of a hamstring strain. Donervon Daniels is back in training and the defender could return to contention after missing the last two games due to a knock.
Barnsley have only lost one of their last eight league games against Blackpool (W4 D3) and unbeaten in the most recent four encounters (W3 D1).
Blackpool won on their last visit to Oakwell in January 2017, winning 2-1 in extra-time of an FA Cup third round replay.
Barnsley are one of just three sides that remain unbeaten on home soil across the top four tiers of English Football this campaign (P22 W14 D8 L0), alongside Luton and Liverpool.
Following their 2-1 victory against Fleetwood last time out, Blackpool will be aiming to secure back-to-back league victories for the first time since November 2018 (run of three consecutive wins).
Each of Blackpool's last eight goals in League One have been scored by different players (Armand Gnanduillet, Chris Taylor, Curtis Tilt, Jay Spearing, Marc Bola, Matthew Virtue-Thick, Nathan Delfouneso and Nya Kirby).
