Barnsley vs Sheff Wed Lineups and Other News

Barnsley

Barnsley narrowly edged Bolton 1-0 at home after drawing 1-1 away in the first leg to earn the right to contest this League One playoff final at Wembley. The Tykes won both regular-season matches vs their Yorkshire neighbours Wednesday – 2-0 away and 4-2 at home. However, they still finished 10 points behind the Owls.

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.

Sheff Wed

The Owls made history in the semifinals as they became the first team in English playoff matches to overcome a 0-4 deficit from the first leg and progress. Wednesday beat Peterborough 5-1 at home in the second leg and edged the penalty shootout to progress. Naturally, after such a heroic effort the players will be all pumped up and full of self-belief.

The important defender Famewo remains sidelined. Playmaker Byers is also unlikely to recover on time from injury. Wednesday used to play without both though and with all the forward weapons fit and raring to go the Owls spell danger as they have 4 forwards that have scored double-digit goals this season.
