Npower Championship Forty Two: Barnsley v Charlton Athletic
Match Preview. Team News
Barnsley are definitely without Martin Cranie and Kelvin Etuhu as well as long term casualties Rory Delap, Jim McNulty and Scott Golbourne.
Cranie has missed the last two matches with a hamstring injury and will sit out tomorrow’s match but should return for Tuesday night’s visit by Derby.
Etuhu limped off in the 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace last weekend, also with a hamstring problem and is likely to miss the next two games before returning for the final three matches of the season.
Jim O’Brien started in place of Etuhu at Cardiff on Tuesday and he battles with Tomasz Cywka, who had a hand in Stephen Foster’s equaliser in Wales, for a starting berth on the wing.

Barnsley are unbeaten in their last six matches with Charlton and have not lost to them at Oakwell for 18 years.
Victory for The Reds tomorrow will see them achieve a first ever league double over the Addicks.
They are also searching for a third successive clean sheet at Oakwell against Charlton.
Charlton’s last victory at Oakwell came back in December 1995 when goals from John Robinson and Shaun Newton sealed a 2-1 victory. Andy Payton replied for The Reds.
Charlton’s biggest victory against Barnsley came eight days after Barnsley’s biggest victory over Charlton, back in 1958.
Both sides have won 13 home meetings, whilst Charlton have won four at Oakwell, Barnsley two at the Valley. Incidentally, Barnsley’s two victories in London have come in their two most recent visits, including a 1-0 victory back in October.
Charlton have had a solid first season back in England’s second tier after three years in League One, and they sit in 12th position after winning 14 and losing 15 of their 41 matches.
Chris Powell’s side have lost just one of their last six matches and won three of the last five.
They are unbeaten in four on the road and have won eight away games in the league this season, a record only bettered by the division’s top three sides.
The Addicks have also conceded just 23 away goals this season. Only Leicester have let in less away goals, but the Foxes did concede two at Oakwell 11 days ago.
They have also kept clean sheets in three of their last five matches.
Tomorrow is their 1,800th away league fixture.
This is Barnsley’s third successive game against a side beginning with the letter C.
The Reds are hunting a fourth straight home win and an incredible eighth home victory in nine in all competitions.
Before this run they had won just two home matches all season.
Barnsley now have more points than they gained in the whole of 2011-2012, 49 to 48.
Avoid defeat tomorrow and they will hit the 50 point mark for the sixth time in seven seasons since returning to the Championship.
Victory tomorrow would be Barnsley’s ninth home league win of the season, equalling last season’s total.
A 1-0 victory would mean they have scored and conceded 24 at Oakwell this campaign. They have already scored two more goals home and away than they managed in the whole of 2011-2012.
