Hayes: Will start against Hull

Hayes: Will start against Hull

Barnsley new boy Paul Hayes will go straight into the starting line-up after arriving on loan from Preston with a view to a permanent move in January.

Tykes manager Mark Robins has no new injury or suspension problems, so Matt Hill, drafted in on loan last week from Wolves following Jay McEveley's knee surgery, will continue alongside Jason Shackell at the heart of defence.

Defender Bobby Hassell remains Robins' only injury concern, while the likes of Jim O'Brien and Andy Gray, dropped to the bench at Coventry last week, will be hoping for recalls to the starting line-up.

Barnsley, chasing their fifth home win, have lost only once at Oakwell this season, to Cardiff in October.

Hull are without midfielder Robert Koren, who has a hamstring injury, and suspended centre-half Daniel Ayala.

Nigel Pearson also has doubts over Paul McShane and James Harper.

McShane has suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury and Harper, who made his first appearance for Hull when stepping off the bench in last week's home defeat to Portsmouth, could be rested as he eases his way back from a broken bone in his foot.

Jimmy Bullard is still working his way back towards full fitness following a knee injury and goalkeeper Vito Mannone, on loan from Arsenal, is hoping to make his first-team debut.
