Oakwell's East Stand has now been cleared to re-open for matches.

The stand was shut for Tuesday's win over Portsmouth due to some loose cladding.

Repairs have been made and approved by the Safety Advisory Group which oversees EFL grounds.

The stand will be in use for Saturday's match with Plymouth, unless it is called off due to snow.

The Reds are set to make an assessment on the safety of the areas around Oakwell.

Meanwhile, both the temporary footbridge and the interchange link bridge will be closed one hour before and one hour after the match.

A club statement read: "The decision has been made by British Transport Police (BTP), South Yorkshire Police (SYP), Barnsley Council (BMBC), Barnsley FC and South Yorkshire Passenger Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) to prevent any clashes between fans and other public transport users.

"Due to the size of the temporary footbridge over the Jumble Lane crossing, there are safety concerns due to the volume of fans who may use the bridge on matchdays.

"Similarly, the link bridge in the Interchange, being the most direct thoroughfare, will be closed except to people with immediate train journeys, mobility issues and those in wheelchairs. The co-operation and understanding of all supporters is greatly appreciated."
