Barnsley travel to Valley Parade for their penultimate pre-season match and with a 100% record to preserve.
Chris Burton, the Barnsley physio told the club’s official website: ‘Anderson will miss tomorrow more as a precaution. He will rest up over the weekend but he should be fit for Man City next Saturday’
Bradford City Team News:
City have only lost once in their pre-season fixtures, a 3-1 home defeat to Mark Hughes’ Premier League big spenders Man City, whom the Reds face next Saturday. New signing James Hanson and Peter Thorne looked lively in attack and will be looking to stake a claim to start the first game of the season against Notts County.
Player to watch: Luke O’Brien
The tenacious young left back took home the Player Of The Year award for Bradford last season and will look to halt the progress of tricker winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce.
Barnsley Team News:
The Reds are without Anderson De Silva but may take Iain Hume, who played in his first match since his fractured skull injury on Tuesday night at Gainsborough, almost scoring with his first touch. The Reds will be looking to maintain their 100% record and make it 7 wins from 7 in pre-season.
Player to watch: Kayode Odejayi
The Nigerian international has been banging them in for the Reds in pre-season scoring 5 in 5 and looks a completely different striker to the one that couldn’t hit a barn door, barn or even the farm house when one on one with the keeper.
