Preview: Barnsley (H)

24 August 2018

The Iron will be back in Sky Bet League One action at Glanford Park this Saturday when Barnsley make the visit from South Yorkshire (kick-off 3.00pm).

United will be looking to bounce back from Wednesday night’s home defeat against Fleetwood Town.

Meanwhile, the Tykes, who were relegated from the Championship last term, have started this campaign strongly having won three of their first four games, remaining unbeaten and yet to concede a league goal.

TEAM NEWS…

Striker Stephen Humphrys came off with a tight hamstring in the second-half against Fleetwood and he will be assessed before this weekend’s game.

Both Funso Ojo and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson made a return to the starting eleven during the week, having both been out injured.

However, goalkeeper Matt Gilks (knee) remains a long-term absentee for the Iron.

PAST MEETINGS…

The Iron drew 0-0 with Barnsley in the last meeting between the two sides in March 2016.

In the same season, United came out victorious at Glanford Park, winning 2-0. The goals were scored by Tom Hopper and Gary McSheffrey.

ONE TO WATCH…

Striker Kieffer Moore bagged a hat-trick in Barnsley’s last outing against Rochdale, meaning that he is a player the Iron need to watch out for.

The former Ipswich man joined Oakwell in January this year after an eye-catching half-season on loan at Rotherham United.

He netted 13 league goals in 22 games for the Millers and has since scored seven goals for his new club.
