Barnsley manager Mark Robins has just one absentee, Bobby Hassell, for his side's home game against Leicester.

Robins, who confirmed his interest in former Preston and Leeds striker David Healy, has had no luck in attempting to add to his squad in time for the visit of Nigel Pearson's side.

Robins said: "It's difficult at the moment to add to the squad. This is always a very difficult transfer window because the only players people want to move on are the ones they do not want.

"The players we want to bring in at the moment are either unobtainable or unavailable. We will have to see what happens.

"It's no secret now that I asked David Healy, but he's one that may be available, but is definitely in the unobtainable category at the moment.

"We have some good players at this football club and the opportunity now to go and get three points against a very good Leicester City side."

Leicester boss Pearson has no new problems as his side look to return to winning ways.

After a home draw against Ipswich and a defeat at Swansea in the Championship, City`s woes continued on Saturday as they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Cardiff.

Pearson made three changes for the fourth-round tie in the Welsh capital and he is expected to make some alterations again.

It remains to be seen whether leading scorer Matty Fryatt will be risked with league leaders Newcastle the visitors to the Walkers Stadium at the weekend.

However, the likes of Andy King, Lloyd Dyer and Steve Howard will come back into the reckoning.

Former Newcastle winger Nolberto Solano may be included in the squad for the first time.
