A round-up of Barnsley FC related stories.

REDS SET FOR CUP GAME AT BLACKPOOL

Barnsley will look to win their first EFL Trophy knock-out game since they won the final in 2016 when they visit Blackpool from 7pm tomorrow.

The Reds won their first two group games at home to Grimsby Town and Manchester City under 21s but were thrashed 5-1 last month at League Two Bradford City. They are expected to play a stronger team than in that last game when they gave several debuts to youngsters.

Centre-back Jack Shepherd was sent off at Bradford so is suspended for this game. Kacper Lopata could be involved after returning from injury last week.

Head coach Neill Collins said: “We’ll be going to Blackpool to win. We’re at the point now where we’re not far from Wembley. We’ll go with a strong team.”
