Barnsley travel to West Yorkshire on Saturday to take on local rivals Leeds United.

Leeds will be without Liam Birdcutt who is out for eight weeks with a broken foot. Ronaldo Vieira should recover from a knee problem and Pontus Jansson should have recovered from a hamstring strain.

Aidy White faces a late fitness test but it is expected that Kpekawa will continue at left back. Winnall, Armstrong and Hammill will all be pushing for starts after impressing as substitutes against Aston Villa with the reds expected to revert back to their favoured 4-4-2 formation.

The match is the first to be played by either club since they were both implicated in the Daily Telegraphs football corruption story. Assistant coach Tommy Wright has lost his job with the reds while Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has also been targeted by the newspaper.

Leeds have won only one of their last five league games against the reds. That was a 1 – 0 win in October 2012 at Elland Road.

The reds have only lost two of their last 10 league matches against Leeds in total.

Pablo Hernandez has created a whopping 21 chances for Leeds this season but amazingly is yet to record an assist.

Conor Hourihane and Marley Watkins have four assists apiece for the reds this term, the highest in the Championship.

Reds fans lets have your predictions for this one. Can we do what we usually do and beat Leeds? Or will it be a closely contested Yorkshire derby. I think the latter and I`m going for a 2 – 2 draw.
