Trio poised to return for Tykes test

Left-back Jose Enrique, striker Peter Lovenkrands and experienced midfielder Nicky Butt are all in the squad to face the Tykes at St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.
Enrique has been out since damaging a hamstring on January 27 while Lovenkrands picked up a similar problem during the 3-0 win over Preston a fortnight ago and Butt has been sidelined by a thigh injury for the last month.
Joey Barton has been back in training for more than a week but Hughton will not use him until he is confident he has regained full match fitness following his foot injury.
But Wayne Routledge (calf), Steven Taylor (knee) and Shola Ameobi (hamstring) remain on the casualty list.
