No new injury worries for Barnsley ahead of Championship clash with Norwich

Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom could name the same starting line-up for the home game against Norwich.

Heckingbottom has no new injury or suspension worries following last week's win at Birmingham as his side chase their first home league win since August.

Striker Marley Watkins sits out the second game of his three-match ban, so Tom Bradshaw is hoping to start again up front alongside Sam Winnall.

Winger Adam Hammill and striker Adam Armstrong are among those pushing for recalls, while defender Aidy White (glute) remains a long-term absentee.

Norwich boss Alex Neil could well name the same side after seeing the Canaries end a five-game losing run by hammering Brentford 5-0 last weekend.

Key midfielder Jonny Howson made his return from two months out following ankle surgery and lasted the full game.

Winger Matt Jarvis, meanwhile, could be challenging for a place on the bench after making his first appearance of the season in the Checkatrade Trophy in midweek.

The 30-year-old, who underwent knee surgery in the summer, played 45 minutes in the defeat by Swansea.
