Tykes set for Foster boost

08 April 2011 08:00
Barnsley captain Stephen Foster could make an overdue return from injury for the match against Bristol City. The Tykes defender looked set to make his comeback from a thigh problem in the Crystal Palace clash, but failed to make the squad. However, he played 45 minutes in a reserve match against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday and could be selected. Fellow defender Paul McShane did feature against Palace after making a speedy recovery from a hamstring tear and is likely to retain his place. Jay McEveley (knee) and Jacob Mellis (hamstring) managed more than an hour of second-string action in the 1-0 defeat against Forest and both are in contention for a recall. The last 10 matches have yielded just seven points for Mark Robins' side, who have slipped to 16th.
