As you were for Tykes

Barnsley boss Keith Hill will name the same 18-man squad when they play host to Burnley.

They Tykes were edged out 2-1 by league leaders Cardiff on Saturday but Hill is expected to keep faith with his side.

Out of the three loanees drafted in on deadline day, only midfielder Jonathan Greening was handed a starting role.

Fellow midfielder Akos Buzsaky and striker Emile Sinclair were both on the bench and could be in line for a full debut.

Hill has no new injury or suspension worries, but midfielder David Perkins remains sidelined with the hamstring problem that has kept him out for the last four matches.

Summer signing Mido is also expected to miss out again after Hill revealed he was suffering with a back injury at full-time against the Bluebirds.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche's relief that he can welcome Kieran Tripper back into the squad has been tempered by Dean Marney's unavailability.

Marney, who scored the decisive goal in the 1-0 victory against Hull at the weekend, picked up his fifth yellow card of the season for time wasting in the final seconds of the game at the KC Stadium and will serve a one-match ban.

Marney's absence means Dyche will have to reshuffle his midfield with Junior Stanislas and Marvin Bartley both waiting in the wings.

Trippier, who missed the win against Steve Bruce's men through suspension, is not guaranteed an immediate return to the side as his replacement, David Edgar, played the full 90 minutes to help the Clarets get back to winning ways with a clean sheet.

Dyche has no injury concerns going into the game at Oakwell with a fully-fit squad hoping for inclusion.

Danny Lafferty lost his starting place at the weekend to Ben Mee, recalled from a foot injury, and is expected to have to remain satisfied with a place among the substitutes.
