Barnsley will be looking to make it seven points from nine at the start of the Championship season at home to Luton Town from 7.45pm tomorrow.

Markus Schopp is set to make a decision on the fitness of Obbi Oulare on Tuesday, while Carlton Morris will miss the game through a knee injury he sustained on Saturday – with a scan due tomorrow.

Luton – who finished 12th last season after surviving on the final day of 2019/20 like Barnsley – began their campaign with a 3-0 home win over newly-promoted Peterborough United. They then lost 3-2 at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, going 3-0 down before pulling two goals back.

Assistant manager Tonda Eckert said: "Luton was the first game I was on the bench for in English professional football.

"It will be difficult. Their manager has done an incredible job aand they have a strong team.

"They have scored five goals in two games so it will be tough defensively. They came back well against West Brom.

"We will be looking to win again and I hope the support will be similar to Saturday."

Schopp was disappointed with elements of the performance in Saturday's 1-0 win over Coventry City.

Eckert said: "It's not so easy when you come from a season without fans to feeling that special atmosphere. We need to be more confident in certain aspects of the game. Overall, I think we had a good performance on Saturday. We were solid and didn't concede a goal. It is just some little details to add to take the points."

Luton's contingent of former Barnsley players, which almost reached double figures in recent seasons, has been reduced by the departures this summer of Matty Pearson, George Moncur, Martin Cranie and Ryan Tunnicliffe.

But Oakwell academy graduates James Bree and Jordan Clark, who is from Hoyland, have started the league games. Luke Berry and Elliot Lee are both at the club.

Barnsley captain Cauley Woodrow began his career with Luton before moving to Fulham as a teenager.

The Reds won 2-1 at Kenilworth Road on Easter Monday, with Daryl Dike netting a brace before he missed a penalty for a hat-trick with Luton counter-attacking and scoring.

Barnsley had lost their opening league game of last season 1-0 at home to Luton, who also won 3-1 at Oakwell early in the previous campaign.

The Bedfordshire club have lost just once at Oakwell – a 3-2 League One defeat in 2018 – in their last seven visits since 1995, winning five.
