The team news is in and Mark Robins has made no changes to the team that started the match against Coventry City on Monday in the Championship.

Garry O’Connor is still preferred as the lone front man to Andy Gray and Diego Arismendi and Nathan Doyle will be looking to retain their places again ahead of Hugo Colace.

There are eight changes to take note of for the West Ham United team as Avram Grant shuffles his pack following the 5-0 drubbing at Newcastle United in the week.

Perhaps most notably there’s no sign of England internationals Carlton Cole or Matthew Upson.

Scott Parker takes his place on the bench for the Hammers and will no doubt feature if Barnsley take the lead in the game.

The Teams:

Barnsley: Steele, Hassell, Shackell, Foster, Hill, Trippier, Arismendi, Hammill, Doyle, Lovre, O’Connor.

Subs: Preece, O’Brien, Neumann, Butterfield, Colace, Gray, Bennett.


West Ham United: Green, Faubert, Reid, Tomkins, Boa Morte, Hines, Spector, Noble, Barrera, Obinna, Nouble.

Subs: Boffin, Spence, Upson, Parker, Edgar, Piquionne, Sears.
