Barnsley manager Mark Robins has virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from for the game, with Jeronimo Neumann the only doubt due to a groin strain.

Kieran Trippier is back at Oakwell fully fit following international duty with England Under-21s and Robins is hoping Chris Wood will be ready to play alongside Garry O'Connor following his return from action with New Zealand.

Fellow forward Andy Gray is hoping to return to the starting line-up though, while Goran Lovre, Nathan Doyle, Luke Potter and Jacob Butterfield, who all started on the bench in the Tykes' last match against Cardiff, are all in Robins' plans.

Robert Earnshaw remains the only absentee for Forest.

The striker has missed the last three games due to a thigh problem and was also forced to withdraw from the Wales squad for their Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland.

Three players staked their claim for a recall to the starting line up with goals for the reserves this week, none more so than Dele Adebola who scored a hat-trick in a 5-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday. Fellow forwards David McGoldrick and Garath McCleary were also on the scoresheet.

Defender Kelvin Wilson and wingers Radoslaw Majewski and Nathan Tyson complete the list of players hoping to get back into the team.

Is Anybody Still Saying 'Wenger In'?

Even the most sensible and loyal Wenger apologists are now saying that he should leave the club. We also have lots more on Brendan Rodgers and a Chelsea plea...

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...
