A round-up of Barnsley FC stories this week.
DUFF AND PHILLIPS UP FOR AWARDS
Barnsley head coach Michael Duff and midfielder Adam Phillips have been nominated for League One awards for November.
Duff is nominated as Manager of the Month after the Reds won their two league games as well as two FA Cup ties.
Phillips, who has scored five goals in his last six games, is nominated for Player of the Month.
The winners are due to be revealed on Friday morning.
LOANEES STYLES AND ISEKA BACK IN ACTION
Barnsley players were back in loan action this week.
Aaron Leya Iseka came off the bench for Adanaspor in their Turkish second tier 2-2 draw at home to Goztepe, for whom ex-Red Romal Palmer netted a late leveller. Iseka has so far made four appearances, scoring in his previous match last month.
Callum Styles came off the bench for Millwall in their 3-0 loss at Sunderland.
Aiden Marsh is back at Oakwell for rehab after fracturing his foot playing for Scunthorpe.
Joe Ackroyd played in Guiseley’s 1-0 win over Morpeth in the Northern Premier League. He was taken off after 80 minutes for fellow Reds loanee Keegan Hartley, with the winner bundled in in injury-time after a penalty was saved.
STONES SET FOR WORLD CUP QUARTER-FINAL
John Stones is due to play his second World Cup quarter-final on Saturday.
The defender, who is from Thurlstone and began his career with the Reds, has started every game for the Three Lions who topped their group then beat Senegal 3-0 on Sunday in the first knock-out game.
He has earned praise for his performances in central defence, alongside Harry Maguire who also had a brief stint in the Oakwell academy.
England are now due to face holders France at 7pm, just hours after Barnsley visit Oxford United in League One.
FA CUP DATE
It has been announced that Barnsley’s FA Cup game at Derby County is due to be played at 12.30pm on Sunday, January 8.
The Reds, who have beaten Bolton and Crewe in the first two rounds, were hoping for a Premier League opponent to boost their finances and help in the January transfer window.
But instead they will travel to their fellow League One top ten side Derby, where they lost 2-1 in the league in August.
CHAPMAN NETS BUT 21S LOSE
Barnsley under 21s lost 3-1 at Crewe Alexandra on Monday.
Theo Chapman put the visitors in front just before the break but the hosts came back. The under 21s are ninth, off bottom on goal difference. They are now due to visit Watford on Tuesday.
Barnsley under 18s lost 2-1 to Doncaster in the PDL Cup. The goal came from Josiah Dyer with an assist from Ziggy Kozluk – the sons of ex-Reds Bruce and Rob respectively.
