The 24-year-old, a regular under Daniel Stendel and caretaker manager Adam Murray, has played just 21 minutes in the three games of Struber's reign at Oakwell.

He was not even included in the matchday squad as the Reds finally ended their winless streak against Hull last week and Struber said it will not be “easy” for him to break back into the team.

“The last game it was a great performance from everyone,” Struber said. “Now it is not so easy for him, but he has the same chance as every player.”

Having had three games in his first 10 days at the helm, Struber has taken advantage of a clear week in training.

He has already seen a benefit and hopes the good work, plus the confidence from last week's win can act as a springboard at Cardiff this weekend.

“This was my first week with the players, we had a long week together and we spent a lot of time in the positioning,” the Austrian said.

“I think it has got better and better, this was the benefit this week of having more time. “Also we won the last game so the self-confidence and the conviction is better.

“It is always better when we have good results and we have a good performance. Winning is always good for self-confidence.”
