BARNSLEY have been depleted due to injury and illness this week and may have to make late decisions before their game with Burton Albion.

Several players have been ill, including Jack Aitchison, but head coach Michael Duff hoped they would all be ready to play.

Tom Edwards has recovered from a knee injury but now picked up another knock.

Duff told the Chronicle: “On Thursday and Friday, we will come up with the plan and what the contingency plans are which go with it.”

Josh Benson has a hamstring injury which is set to keep him out for at least another week.

Conor McCarthy is out for the season while Will Hondermarck, Slobodan Tedic, Luke Thomas and Jordan Helliwell are not expected back until 2023.
