Barnsley vs Bolton Lineups and Other News

Barnsley

Barnsley didn’t do enough in the first leg after taking the lead. The Tykes had been in declining form at the worst possible time of the year and they are now winless in 4 (D2 L2). Still, the 1-1 draw from the first leg keeps them well in with a chance to reach Wembley.

Barnsley have all of their regulars fit and available. Still, missing 4 players due to injuries but none of them starts often even when fit so this is not a major problem.

Bolton

Bolton did well to come from behind and save a 1-1 draw in the first leg. Played well only in the second half and now will need to be focused from the off.

Bolton continue to be missing 5 injured players. Among them 3 important defenders – Iredale, Jones and Mbete. All of them are regular starters when fit and this forces the manager to be creative with his crippled backline. On top of all that several unnamed players will be absent too after they sustained injuries in the first leg. The manager refused to name those, or how many exactly but it seems Bolton’s selection problems will be plenty.
