Barnsley – Burton preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Barnsley vs Burton lineups.

Barnsley

Barnsley had a two-week break between league matches but they played in the EFL Trophy recently and despite using mainly reserves made it 3 consecutive wins in all competitions. 

The Tykes lost a few games early on in the season but despite that, they continued to have the best attack in League One – 14 goals scored in 6 rounds. 

Styles might not start in the coming match as it will be only Thursday before he returns from international duty. McCarthy could be left on the bench too as he only just returned from a long spell out. 

The only players in the treatment room right now are midfielders Benson and Wolfe. There is plenty of quality cover for both of them. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Roberts (GK), Williams, Lopata, McCart, Russell, Cotter, Cadden, Phillips, Kane, McAtee & Cole 

Burton

Burton are feeling some serious pressure already. The Brewers accumulated just 2 points from their first 6 league games. They lost their first 3 matches but managed to earn 2 draws in the most recent 3 games. 

Burton and Barnsley exchanged a win each last season and the Brewers have been enjoying some decent form in this fixture in the most recent matchups. 

The main left-back Seddon misses the game suspended. Caprice or fit-again Hamer will have to provide cover. In further issues on the left flank winger Bennett is a serious doubt. Striker Stockton also nurses an injury but the main centre forward Walker is over a hip issue and he could be available to start for the first time this season. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Blackman (GK), Brayford, Hughes, Moon, Caprice, Powell, Oshilaja, Chauke, Helm, Walker & Gordon 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

Player to Watch: Devante Cole

Barnsley’s key striker Devante Cole has been on fire so far. He scored 6 goals in the first 6 rounds, 4 in the 3 home matches played, and so far no defence had been able to contain him. 

Full of confidence and against a shaky Burton team we can see Cole continuing his hot run of form with another memorable display.
