Barnsley Vs Nottingham Forest, Sat 16 Oct 2010

Next Story

Barnsley manager Mark Robins has virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from for the home clash with Nottingham Forest.

Midfielder Jeronimo Neumann is the only doubt due to a groin strain, so Robins has plenty of options as his side chase their first win in five league matches.

Defender Kieran Trippier is back at Oakwell fully fit following international duty with England Under-21s and Robins is hoping striker Chris Wood will be ready to resume alongside Garry O'Connor following his return from action with New Zealand.

Fellow forward Andy Gray is hoping to return to the starting line-up though, while Goran Lovre, Nathan Doyle, Luke Potter and Jacob Butterfield, who all started on the bench in the Tykes' last match against Cardiff, are all in Robins' plans.

Robert Earnshaw remains the only absentee for Nottingham Forest.

The striker has missed the last three games due to a thigh problem and was also forced to withdraw from the Wales squad for their Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland.

Three players staked their claim for a recall to the starting line up with goals for the reserves this week, none more so than Dele Adebola who scored a hat-trick in a 5-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday. Fellow forwards David McGoldrick and Garath McCleary were also on the scoresheet.

Defender Kelvin Wilson and wingers Radoslaw Majewski and Nathan Tyson complete the list of players hoping to get back into the team.
