O'Grady in Reds frame

Barnsley's leading goalscorer Chris O'Grady could return to action against Yeovil in caretaker-boss Micky Mellon's third game in charge.

O'Grady has missed the last four games due to a calf strain, but returned to full training this week and is hoping to add to his seven goals for the season in Mellon's first home game since David Flitcroft was sacked.

O'Grady could partner Marcus Tudgay up front for the first time since the latter's recent arrival on loan from Nottingham Forest.

Mellon, who guided the Reds to victory at Brighton before last weekend's narrow defeat at Burnley, has no new selection problems, while striker Marcus Pedersen, midfielders David Fox and Stephen Dawson, plus defender Bobby Hassell are all in contention.

Yeovil look set to keep the faith with Chris Dunn.

The former Coventry has impressed since making his Glovers debut last month and he will retain his place despite Marek Stech's return to full fitness.

The Czech shotstopper has recovered from a broken hand he sustained back in August but might have to bide his time and pick up some match fitness before stepping back into the side.

Meanwhile midfielder Kevin Dawson looks set to be in the squad to face a Barnsley side two points behind the Glovers and he could come up against brother Stephen who was an unused substitute last weekend against Burnley.
