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

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

Cheltenham

Cheltenham suffered their third home defeat in a row last weekend when being edged 0-1 by Northampton. Not just that but Cheltenham are yet to score this season. Failed to do so in the first 5 rounds. 

Smith and Goodwin remain doubtful. This opens room for the recently loaned-in Henry to play. In more serious injury issues main striker Lloyd and two of the key inner midfielders Hammond and Olayinka continue rehabilitating. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Southwood (GK), Long, Davies, Freestone, Henry, Thompson, Bonds, Sercombe, Ferry, Keena & Street 

Barnsley

Barnsley recorded their second win of the season last weekend when they beat Wigan 2-0 away from home. An early red card for the hosts made things easy and the Tykes cruised to the win. 

Despite being able to win only 2 out of 5 league games so far Barnsley lead the entire league with the 12 goals they have scored in those 5 matches. 

Defender Cundy and playmaker Cornell are the two main injury issues. Both train again but are given only an outside chance to make a return this weekend. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Roberts (GK), Lopata, Shepherd, Williams, Russell, Cotter, Cadden, Phillips, Kane, Waters & Cole

​Starting Lineups

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

​Player to Watch: Devante Cole

Barnsley’s fast striker Devante Cole was the team’s top scorer last term with 70% of his goals scored on the road. Cole is using his speed very well in away matches and he loves this fixture too. Scored twice vs Cheltenham in the last 3 meetings. Cole will certainly fancy his chances to do it again now.
