Carey: Misses out for Bristol City

Barnsley manager Keith Hill has no new injury or suspension worries.

But the Tykes will still be without strikers Danny Haynes and Reuben Noble-Lazarus, winger Matty Done, defender Bobby Hassell and midfielders Goren Lovre and David Perkin.

Hill told the club's official website: "It's got to be the right time to bring the players back into the team. I'm reasonably content and happy with the squad I've got available."

Noble-Lazarus is struggling with an ankle problem, Haynes and Done are both recovering from hamstring injuries, Hassell has a groin strain and neither Perkins (hamstring) or Lovre (knee) are ready to return.

Barnsley are chasing a third straight home win and have not been beaten in their last four matches at Oakwell.

Bristol City will be without defensive casualties Louis Carey and Jamie McAllister.

Veteran centre-back Carey is still suffering with a knee injury, while McAllister continues his rehabilitation from an ankle knock and neither will be available to face the Tykes.

However, manager Derek McInnes has been boosted by the news Cole Skuse will be fit for the visit to Oakwell.

Skuse was withdrawn at half-time during the Robins' 2-0 defeat to Birmingham at Ashton Gate on Sunday, complaining of blurred vision.

The full-back was taken to hospital to be assessed by doctors but soon got the all-clear to return home and is available to McInnes as City look for their first win in the Championship since August 17.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.

That's Why We Didn't Want Jose At United

There is plenty of reaction to Mourinho's antics (Isn't that exactly what he wanted?) plus thoughts on Connor Wickham, Fabio Borini, beach balls and Tim Sherwood...
