Barnsley striker Stefan Payne is set to be out for 8 to 12 weeks with a foot fracture.

Fortunately for Barnsley, we have lots of cover up front but this is a huge blow for Payne who was looking the part as a Championship front man.

Goals were still missing but his all round game was looking good. He`s got strength and pace, held the ball up well and won his fair share in the air.

He may not prove to be the out and out goal scorer that some of the others could be but he was a different option and was probably unlucky not to start the last game.

I wish him a speedy recovery but hopefully in his absence our strikers will do the business making it a long hard road back to first team contention.
