Giraldo set for Tykes bow
Barnsley's latest signing David Gonzalez Giraldo is expected to start in Saturday's home clash against Middlesbrough.
The 30-year-old Colombian, a free agent following his release from Brighton in May, has been drafted in as cover for Ben Alnwick and Luke Steele.
Alnwick starts a three-game ban for his attempted headbutt on Rochdale's Ray Putterill in the Capital One Cup last week, while Steele is not ready to return following a long-term stomach injury.
Barnsley will also be without winger Jim O'Brien, who is expected to be sidelined for three months after dislocating his shoulder against Rochdale, while another new arrival, striker Marlon Harewood, could make his league debut for the club after signing a one-year deal on Tuesday.
Teenage defender John Stones is poised to make his first league start for the Tykes, but summer signing Mido is sidelined after rupturing a hamstring in the warm-up prior to the friendly with Doncaster earlier this month.
Summer signings Kelvin Etuhu, Jacob Mellis and Tomasz Cywka are all hoping to make their league debuts, while Portuguese winger Toni Silva is hoping to shake off a knee injury.
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has a near fully-fit squad to choose from.
Striker Lukas Jutkiewicz is two or three weeks away from a return after his knee injury but Mustapha Carayol has recovered from the hamstring strain that forced him off at half-time against Bury last week.
Joe Bennett also returned to training this week following a knee injury as was Faris Haroun (groin).
"Joe's trained the last two or three days and he's looked fine," Mowbray told the club's official website.
"He's got amazing talent and fast feet. He has a chance but he hasn't played a competitive game yet so we'll see."M18-08-12 011
