Barnsley duo Oli McBurnie and Connor Mahoney could make full debuts

Barnsley caretaker boss Paul Harsley must decide whether to hand Oli McBurnie and Connor Mahoney their full debuts against Sheffield Wednesday.

Harsley, placed in temporary charge following Paul Heckingbottom’s departure to Leeds, has no new major injury concerns.

Centre-half Matt Mills made his debut in last week’s defeat at QPR and should continue, while Harsley must also decide whether to keep Nick Townsend in goal or recall Adam Davies.

Winger Lloyd Isgrove is edging closer to a return after injury, but remains doubtful, while defenders Zeki Fryers and Adam Jackson are still unavailable.

Sheffield Wednesday’s injury crisis shows no sign of easing as they chase their first league win in seven matches.

Marco Matias’ red card in last week’s home defeat to Birmingham has been rescinded, but the forward sustained an injury in training on Sunday and is out.

Daniel Pudil is banned after his dismissal against Birmingham, Steven Fletcher has learned his season is over due to a knee injury and Joost van Aken (hamstring) has had a further setback.

Jacob Butterfield and Glenn Loovens are doubtful after both missed training this week through illness, while Tom Lees, Keiren Westwood, Gary Hooper, Almen Abdi, Kieran Lee, Barry Bannan and Fernando Forestieri are all still out.
