Barnsley boss Mark Robins will recall Stephen Foster to the starting line-up for the trip to Watford.
Foster will return to the heart of the Tykes defence to cover the absence of Paul McShane, who has returned to parent club Hull after his loan spell at Oakwell expired.
Robins has no new injury or suspension problems, with versatile defender Bobby Hassell in contention after missing the last three games with calf and ankle ligament trouble.
Argentine midfielder Hugo Colace is also available having sat out the last two matches with a leg injury, while young striker Reuben Noble-Lazarus could be recalled to the squad after overcoming the illness which forced him out of last Saturday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.
Defender Luke Potter remains sidelined with a knee problem that has kept him out since November and Alastair Taylor is also out with an unspecified injury.
