Tykes look strong for Blades battle

Barnsley boss Simon Davey has a fully-fit squad to select from ahead of Tuesday night's Yorkshire derby with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. On-loan Liverpool midfielder Adam Hammill, who has been struggling with an ankle ligament injury, is back in full training but is unlikely to be risked as the Tykes look to move clear of the relegation zone. Davey's side are three points clear of third-bottom Nottingham Forest going into their last seven games and the manager may opt to recall winger Martin Devaney to his starting line-up as he seeks a pressure-relieving win. The sides last met in November when United edged a fractious affair 2-1 as both sides had a man sent off and Barnsley striker Iain Hume suffered a fractured skull after a collision with Chris Morgan. "There will be a little bit of emotion from the last match but we have to put that to one side," assistant manager Ryan Kidd told his club's official website.
