Jennings banned for Reds

Barnsley will be without suspended midfielder Dale Jennings for their Capital One Cup tie against Crewe.

Jennings was shown a straight red card on the opening day for the second successive season during the weekend defeat to Crawley and starts a three-game ban.

Recent signing Keith Treacy could make his first start for the club in Jennings' absence, while Reuben Noble-Lazarus provides boss Danny Wilson with an alternative wide midfield option.

Wilson is not expected to make too many changes, but striker Leroy Lita, signed by the Reds on Saturday, is hoping to make his debut.

Crewe manager Steve Davis has confirmed goalkeeper Ben Garratt will be recalled to the starting line-up for their Capital One Cup match away at Barnsley.

Scott Shearer was the man between the sticks for Saturday's 2-1 defeat away at Fleetwood but Davis will turn to 20-year-old Garratt as he assesses both of his goalkeepers.

Defender Matt Tootle is expected to start despite missing a penalty on the weekend alongside an unchanged defence due to a lack of senior reinforcements on the bench.

Attacking midfielder Brad Inman could also feature after notching his first goal of the season against the Cod Army.
