Barnsley manager Keith Hill will not rush injured pair Rob Edwards and Craig Davies back to action.

Defender Edwards has been out since early September with a hamstring injury, while striker Davies has been in the treatment room for even longer, having not featured since August due to a groin problem. Both have returned to training, though Hill is not feeling the pressure to throw them straight back into action for the trip to Portsmouth on Saturday.

"Rob's doing really well, but there's no rush to get him back," Hill told the Star.

"The players that have come in because of the injuries have done really well and the team is playing well.

"So we're not going to rush him back if he's not 100%.

"The same goes for Craig Davies. He's back training with us, but does need some game time under his belt.

"He's also got to force his way back into the team because Andy Gray has been playing really well up front.

"He's made that shirt his own."
