Barnsley have been dealt a massive blow for their run-in to the end of the season as captain Stephen Foster has been ruled out with a reoccurrence of a hernia problem.

The 28-year-old`s operation to fix the problem appears to have been aggravated in recent fixtures, and the Tykes are set to fight against relegation without their influential skipper.

Since Foster`s return, the Reds have kept back-to-back clean sheets against Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton, picking up four points along the way.

Veteran centre-back, Darren Moore is ruled out of this weekend`s clash with QPR, leaving only Dennis Souza as the only natural central defender.

Unless Barnsley manager Simon Davey can perform a miracle in the loan-market, Reds fans may see utility-man Bobby Hassell move into the centre, with Rob Kozluk reclaiming his spot at right-back.

  • Not good! We’ve had some pretty bad luck this season, combine that with a severe lack of goals and you get a relegation battle. Come on the reds!

  • Yeah it looks like there is matty, it seems he has a normal occurance of fluid on the groin. Lets hope he’s in the squad come saturday!

  • Ben Mee who plays in our reserves at Manchester City, would be a good loan prospect. Lets hope that not having a game does not mean the ones below you win. best of luck for the season
