Football - Flitcroft weighs up options

Barnsley manager David Flitcroft has several selection dilemmas ahead of the Yorkshire derby against Huddersfield.

PA Sport Report

Flitcroft drafted in veteran goalkeeper Mike Pollitt on loan from Wigan in time for the midweek Capital One Cup defeat to Southampton and must decide whether to recall the rested Luke Steele.

Left-back Scott Golbourne, who started all six of the Tykes' games this season, has completed his move to Wolves and with Jean Yves Mvoto suspended following his dismissal at Blackburn last week, Flitcroft will be forced into changes in defence.

Striker Marcus Pedersen, a recent season-long loan signing from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, could make his first league start, but defenders Lewin Nyatanga (hamstring) and Martin Cranie (knee) remain sidelined.
