Barnsley – Shrewsbury preview: Team news, latest form, and probable lineups

Read all the latest news on both teams ahead of their duel, including our predicted Barnsley vs Shrewsbury lineups:

Barnsley

Having gone undefeated in the last four matches in League One and winning three of them is a clear sign of good form for Barnsley. The team is currently sitting in the third place in the standings, five points behind Oxford United in second place, which guarantees promotion. When it comes to team news, Barnsley will be without injured Herbie Kane and Callum Styles.

Barnsley predicted lineup:

Killip (GK), Williams, de Gevigney, McCar,  Russell, O'Keefe, Benson, Kane, Cadden, Waters, Cole

Shrewsbury

After struggling for most of the season, Shrewsbury did well recently, with two wins and a draw in their last three matches in the league. Thanks to this, they managed to climb up to the 15th spot in the standings and they are now nine points away from the relegation zone. Meanwhile, Nurse, Shipley, Thorpe, Finnigan, and Feeney are all on the Shrewsbury's injury list at the moment.

Shrewsbury predicted lineups:

Marosi (GK), Anderson, Flanagan, Dunkley, Winchester, Perry, Bayliss, Kenneh, Bennett, Udoh & Mata

Starting lineups

Teams commonly announce their lineups one hour before the kickoff

Player to watch: Devante Cole

With nine goals and one assist in thirteen League One appearances, Devante Cole has been in amazing form this season. Barnsley's striker is also leading all goalscorers at the moment, so Shrewsbury will clearly have to focus on Cole in this match.
