Barnsley's Martin Cranie (l) has signed a new contract

Cranie was forced out of the midweek Capital One Cup penalty shoot-out win over Scunthorpe in midweek after twisting his knee, so Scott Wiseman could continue or Bobby Hassell may get a recall.

Fellow defender Lewin Nyatanga (hamstring) is still waiting for his first appearance since returning to the club and midfielder Kelvin Etuhu (hamstring) remains 10 days away from a return to full training.

Manager David Flitcroft has no other new injury worries, but is still without midfielder Dale Jennings, who sits out the second game of a three-match ban after his dismissal in the opening-day defeat to Wigan.
