Football - Reds to test trio

Barnsley midfield trio Stephen Dawson, Jim O'Brien and Tomasz Cywka all face late fitness tests ahead of the home game with Watford.

PA Sport Report

Skipper Dawson was elbowed in the eye during the midweek defeat at Bournemouth, O'Brien is hoping to overcome a knee injury and Cywka is nursing a calf strain.

Striker Marcus Pedersen remains sidelined due to a nasty cut on his foot that he sustained on recent international duty, but defender Martin Cranie came through unscathed at Bournemouth after returning from a knee injury.

Fellow defender Peter Ramage, on loan from Crystal Palace, is expected to make his home debut for the Reds, while Reuben Noble-Lazarus, Dale Jennings and Jason Scotland are among those pushing for recalls.
