Moore is struggling with a toe injury and although an X-ray has revealed nothing is broken, the big centre-half has had an injection. Luke Potter is likely to continue at the heart of defence against the Sky Blues at Oakwell, alongside Stephen Foster should Moore miss out.

Manager Simon Davey is hoping winger Mounir El Haimour and striker Iain Hume can prove their fitness in training following long lay-offs and Argentinian midfielder Hugo Colace could return to the squad after a calf injury.

Should Colace be fit, he may have to start on the substitutes' bench, with Davey expected to retain teenager Jacob Butterfield alongside Brazilian Anderson De Silva in central midfield.
