Barnsley skipper a doubt

04 February 2011 11:00
Barnsley skipper Stephen Foster is rated 50/50 for his side's clash at manager Mark Robins' former club Leicester. Foster has missed the last two matches due to a gashed shin sustained in the recent win at Doncaster and, if he is not ready, Robins will retain a back four of Jason Shackell, Matt Hill, Bobby Hassell and Kieran Trippier. Robins revealed several unspecified players were carrying knocks picked up in the midweek win over Preston and could face late fitness tests, while long-term absentees Jay McEveley and Luke Potter are still out with their respective knee injuries. Recent loan signings Jacob Mellis, from Chelsea, and Frank Nouble, from West Ham, are both expected to retain their places in Robins' starting line-up, while Jacob Butterfield and Jim O'Brien are pushing for recalls.
