Laws waits on Fox news
Burnley boss Brian Laws is hopeful that defender Danny Fox will shake off a slight thigh strain and be passed fit for the visit of Barnsley.
The left-back limped out of the Clarets' 3-3 draw at Sheffield United on Saturday but Laws is optimistic he will be passed fit to face Mark Robins` side.
Defender Michael Duff missed the trip to Bramall Lane with a calf strain but he is also expected to be available to feature.
Defender Clarke Carlisle is still suspended and a number of Laws` squad are suffering from the effects of a bug.
However, Laws hopes it will not prevent them from featuring against the Tykes as his side bid to extend their unbeaten home record.
Barnsley manager Mark Robins is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up as his side chase back-to-back wins for the first time this season.
Robins has no new injury or suspension problems following Saturday's 3-1 home win over Nottingham Forest and is unlikely to tinker with his side.
Midfielder Jeronimo Neumann remains the only doubt due to a groin strain, while midfielder Jacob Butterfield gave Robins plenty to ponder after he stepped off the substitutes' bench on Saturday to score the Tykes' third goal.
Striker Chris Wood, on loan from West Brom, and Bobby Hassell both started on the bench on Saturday and may have to be patient as Barnsley aim to climb back into the top half of the table.
Eagles at the double in Burnley win
Burnley enjoyed a winning return to Turf Moor after a second-half brace from the in-form Chris Eagles helped them to a 3-0 victory over Barnsley in their npower Championship fixture.
The 24-year-old former Manchester United winger, who is starting to find the net on a regular basis, scored twice and was joined on the score sheet by Chris Iwelumo as the Clarets turned on the style in a one-way second period.
He curled home his first in superb fashion from the edge of the box before dispatching his second from the spot. Iwelumo's eighth goal of the season and eighth at Turf Moor ensured Burnley's unbeaten home record remained intact.
The home side made a promising start and Eagles looked in the mood, delivering a fantastic ball into the box for Jay Rodriguez with just two minutes gone.
However, the Clarets youngster was inches away from giving Burnley the perfect start having cleverly pulled away at the back post.
The hosts were already playing some good football during the early stages of this game, but the visitors could have forged ahead in the seventh minute.
Hugo Colace dinked a lovely ball over Andre Bikey for Goran Lovre, but Leon Cort came racing back and produced a superbly-timed sliding tackle to deny the Tykes midfielder just as he looked to pull the trigger.
After Barnsley had enjoyed a good spell of possession, there was a coming together between Rodriguez, who had overrun the ball, and Stephen Foster in the box, but referee Andy Haines correctly waved away the home side's appeals.
Tyrone Mears then skipped between Jason Shackell and Jay McEveley, but having done all the hard work, the Clarets full-back failed to find one of several team-mates who has burst forward in support.
Dean Marney thumped goalwards on two separate occasions but Luke Steele comfortably dealt with both, while at the other end Lovre forced a smart stop out of Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen.
The home side went close again in the 30th minute when Steele dropped a deep Eagles cross, but Iwelumo's lobbed effort on the follow-up was cleared to safety by Foster.
With just three second-half minutes gone, Kieran Trippier wasted a glorious chance after Brian Easton, making his league debut, was robbed of the ball.
The Manchester City loanee advanced towards goal but dragged wide of the far post from a tight angle with Jensen closing in.
The hosts broke the deadlock in the 50th minute and it was Eagles, who oozed confidence throughout, angling past Steele from 25 yards.
Iwelumo nodded down an Easton cross, Wade Elliott had the composure to lay-off and Eagles did the rest, curling home his fifth goal of the season in fine style.
Colace would have undoubtedly got an effort on goal two minutes after but for Mears' defensive header at the back post.
Iwelumo's header from an Eagles cross was clawed onto the crossbar by Steele, before Eagles' cross struck the raised arms of Nathan Doyle in the 66th minute and the lineman flagged for a penalty.
After a slight delay while Barnsley protested the decision, Eagles beat Steele with pace and power, picking out the bottom right-hand corner.
Rodriguez then hit the post via Steele's back before Iwelumo wrapped things up nine minutes from time, drilling home after the ball broke kindly in the box.
