Obbi Oulare could be included in Barnsley’s squad to face Coventry City on Saturday depending on how he comes through training on Friday, says Markus Schopp.
Oulare and Aaron Leya Iseka both signed for the Reds in late July.
The Belgian strikers have been getting up to full fitness and adapting to Schopp’s style of play.
They did not play in any pre-season games or either of the first two matches of the season.
Schopp told the Chronicle: “For Obbi, it will be decided on Friday.
“We will decide after our session if he can be involved on Saturday.
“For Aaron, it is too early.”
Mads Andersen is out injured but Devante Cole, Herbie Kane and Victor Adeboyejo all returned on Tuesday for the cup game at Bolton Wanderers after missing chunks of pre-season.
