The reds will be looking for their first win of the season when they entertain Derby at Oakwell on Saturday.

Derby began the season with goalless draw against Brighton in Nigel Pearson`s first game in charge as manager.

Barnsley are looking to halt a four match winless run against the visitors.

Barnsley are without striker Sam Winnall for the clash. He is likely to be out for four weeks.

Pushing for starts up front will be Watkins and Payne with either Kent or Watkins to fight it out for the right wing berth. Another option is to play Moncur in the hole, an experiment that failed miserably against Northampton.

Goalkeeper Adam Davies could be under threat following early season errors. And Angus MacDonald could be in line for a start if indeed Alfie Mawson`s head has been turned by Bristol City.

Derby welcome back Marcus Olsson following a bout of concussion and Nigel Pearson has a big decision on whether to recall striker Chris Martin who was last season`s top scorer.

My team to be face Derby would be:
Davies
Bree; Roberts; Mawson; White
Watkins; Scowen; Hourihane; Hammill
Bradshaw; Payne

Reds fans, who do you think Hecky should select?

Also let`s have your score predictions for this one.

Unfortunately I think it will be another defeat and am predicting 2 – 1 to Derby.

I hope I`m wrong but I think we`ve been handed a difficult start to life in the Championship.
