The Brazilian was forced out of the midweek win over West Brom due to a hamstring strain, so replacement Julian Gray is expected to retain his place in the side.

Manager Mark Robins has no other new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make any further changes following Tuesday night's heartening win.

Goalkeeper Luke Steele will return to the substitutes' bench after recovering from a broken finger but on-loan Southampton goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski will continue in goal.

On-loan Stoke defenders Ryan Shotton and Carl Dickinson will play in their third successive match for the Tykes, with Jon Macken partnering Iain Hume up front as Robins' side chase a fourth win in their last six matches.
