Npower Championship Matchday Six: Barnsley v Leicester City

09 September 2011 06:51
Match Preview Team News Barnsley are once again down to the bare bones despite the fortnight off due to internationals. Craig Davies, Ricardo Vaz Te, Miles Addison, Nathan Doyle and Reuben Noble-Lazarus have all failed to recover from injuries that forced them to miss the goal-less draw at Millwall and now Serbian Goran Lovre has joined them in the treatment room after injuring his knee in training. This should mean boss Keith Hill sticks with the same side that gained a point at the Den.

Along with the 2-0 reverse to Morecambe in the Carling Cup, it means The Reds have lost their first three home games. The last time they lost the first four home games was back in 1966-67. Leicester on the other hand are unbeaten on the road this season, winning three and drawing one, but two of those victories were against Rotherham and Bury in the Carling Cup. In the Championship they have won 1-0 at Coventry and drew 2-2 at Nottingham Forest. The victory at the Ricoh is Leicester’s only maximum points haul on the road since mid March. A win for the Foxes tomorrow would be their third successive victory in all competitions, they first time they will have achieved this since February. The omens do look good for Sven’s men as Leicester have won nine of the last 10 league meetings between the two sides and have kept a clean sheet in eight of them. The only blip in that time came in January 2010 when a 77th minute goal from Hugo Colace gave the Reds a 1-0 win at Oakwell. The Foxes got their revenge by doing the double over Barnsley last season, winning 2-0 at Oakwell and 4-1 at the Walkers Stadium. Barnsley manager Keith Hill could hit a landmark tomorrow. Victory for The Reds would be his 100th in league management. His record currently stands at: W:99 D:54 L:60.
