Football - Etuhu set to sit out

Barnsley manager David Flitcroft is expected to be without Kelvin Etuhu again for the home game with Charlton.

Etuhu missed the midweek draw at Cardiff with a hamstring injury sustained at Crystal Palace last week and was replaced in the starting line-up by Jim O'Brien.

O'Brien is hoping to continue, but midfielder Tomasz Cywka stepped off the bench at Cardiff and is pushing for a recall, as is striker Chris Dagnall.

Flitcroft has no other new injury or suspension problems, but defenders Martin Cranie (hamstring), Jimmy McNulty (ankle) and Rory Delap (calf), plus striker Reuben Noble-Lazarus (ankle) all remain sidelined and left-back Scott Golbourne is out due to a long-term knee injury.

The Tykes, two points above the relegation zone, have lost only one of their last six matches.
