BARNSLEY will be without Bobby Hassell for today’s home clash with Bristol City, but fellow defender Kieran Trippier has returned from injury and is expected to play.
Right-back Hassell is out with a recurrence of his left-calf injury and ankle ligament damage which caused him to have a pain-killing injection during last Saturday’s away clash with Crystal Palace.
But Manchester City loan defender Trippier has recovered from the groin injury which has kept him sidelined since last month.
“Bobby’s not fit, but Kieran is back which is good because that’s a straight swap,” Robins told The Star.
Centre-back Stephen Foster, midfielder Jacob Mellis and left-back Jay McEveley are all keen to return after recovering from injury.
