Barnsley FC vs Fleetwood Town FC prediction. 01:15 Kick-Off, Friday 30 December.
Barnsley will likely come into Thursday’s game with an unchanged starting XI from the one which was fielded on Boxing Day, with James Norwood again set to lead the line after hitting his fourth league goal of the season last time out.
He will be joined by Devante Cole, who has hit the net seven times in 21 League One appearances so far this term, while the likes of Nicky Cadden and Adam Phillips will offer further support from midfield with Luca Connell likely to operate in the engine room.
Mads Andersen will keep his place in the middle of a back three, likely alongside Liam Kitching and Robbie Cundy, while Herbie Kane may again play as a makeshift wing-back on the opposite flank to Jordan Williams.
Barnsley:- Collins; Cundy, Andersen, Kitching; Williams, Cadden, Connell, Phillips, Kane; Cole, Norwood
Fleetwood Town:- Lynch; Johnston, Nsiala, Sarpong-Wiredu, Andrew; Vela, Batty, Warrington; Mendes Gomes, J Garner, Morton
