Barnsley v Scunthorpe preview

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Barnsley and Scunthorpe United at Oakwell.

Barnsley have confirmed Conor Hourihane is not suspended for the home game against Scunthorpe and is expected to resume in midfield.

Hourihane, on four yellow cards, was understood to have received his fifth booking of the season in last week's defeat at Chesterfield, but that was not the case and the Irishman is a likely starter.

On-loan Fulham winger Ryan Williams is hoping to shake off the ankle injury which kept him out last week, while Danny Wilson must decide whether to recall Marcelo Trotta up front alongside Sam Winnall.

Winnall, who has scored six goals in his last five matches - and nine this season - is set to face his former club.

Scunthorpe boss Mark Robins is expected to be without central defenders Andrew Boyce and Miguel Llera.

Boyce received his fifth booking of the season in last week's draw at Crawley and sits out a one-game ban, while Llera was stretchered off in the first half after taking a hefty whack on his right leg. Shaun Brisley is likely to return to the starting line-up.

On-loan West Brom midfielder Liam O'Neil is expected to resume after making his debut for the club last week and Robins must decide whether to stick with Sam Slocombe in goal or recall on-loan Bobby Olejnik.

Midfielders Sean McAllister and Matt Sparrow, plus winger Harry Adelakun are among those pushing for recalls while Richard Brindley arrived on loan from Rotherham in the week and is in contention.
