BATTLING Barnsley skipper Jason Shackell is expected to ovecome his mouth injury to play at Derby County today.

The centre-back had emergency dental treatment last Saturday after an elbow from Norwich City striker Grant Holt nearly caused him to lose his top two teeth.

But Shackell has trained this week and is expected to start for Mark Robins’ side at Pride Park.

The Star understands midfielders Jacob Mellis (hamstring) and Nathan Doyle (calf) will also feature having come through late fitness tests.

Defenders Bobby Hassell (calf) and Stephen Foster (torn hip muscle) are definitely missing, as is Argentinean midfielder Hugo Colace (torn abductor).
