Team News

Matty Pearson, Sorba Thomas, Rolando Aarons, Alex Vallejo, Ryan Schofield, Danny Ward and Levi Colwill are unavailable. Josh Koroma is a doubt.

Cauley Woodrow could make his first start since December but Michal Helik and Aapo Halme are injured and Claudio Gomes (illness) is a doubt.

Match preview

Huddersfield need another win to secure a place in the Championship playoffs and they will push for maximum points in a Yorkshire derby with basement boys Barnsley which could feature plenty of goals.

Third-placed Terriers look assured of a top-six finish and have a slim chance of overhauling second-placed Bournemouth, who are four points clear with two games less.

They will need to keep winning to take advantage of an unlikely Cherries collapse and couldn’t have asked for a better game than a home game against Barnsley, who are on the brink of relegation.

Huddersfield maintained their top three status with a 2-0 victory over promotion rivals Middlesbrough on Monday, although it was slightly bittersweet because winger Sorba Thomas – responsible for 11 Championship assists this season – has was sent off with a knee injury.

Terriers boss Carlos Corberan will want to avoid further injury given the high likelihood of an extended season and if his squad isn’t fully-fledged it could embolden his beleaguered opponents.

Barnsley need to win their remaining four games to have any hope of staying in place, but they are being boosted by the return from injury of star striker Cauley Woodrow, who is set to make his first start of the year.

With Woodrow and Carlton Morris set to play in the front two and talented Metz loanee Amine Bassi providing a creative spark, Barnsley have a decent chance to score. But their dodgy defense have conceded 62 league goals this season and could let them down.

Key stat

Both teams have scored in three of Barnsley’s last four games
