Barnsley's latest loan signing Chris Wood will go straight into the squad for the clash at Reading.
The 18-year-old Kiwi has completed a 93-day emergency loan move from West Brom and is in contention.
Midfielder Hugo Colace is expected to return to the squad after missing the last three games due to a calf injury.
Manager Mark Robins has no new injury or suspension problems and is not expected to make too many changes following last week's home draw with Derby.
The point was enough to lift Barnsley into the top half of the table but Robins' side have yet to register a league win away from home this season and have taken only one point from three matches.
