Double ban blow for Tykes

Last Updated: Tue, 24 Dec 2013 08:58

Barnsley striker Marcus Tudgay's loan spell at the club has been cut short by suspension and Jacob Mellis will also miss the visit of Bolton.

Tudgay arrived on loan from Nottingham Forest last month until January 5, but a straight red card in the weekend draw at Leeds means he will miss the Reds' next three matches.

Midfielder Mellis received his fifth yellow card of the season at Leeds and sits out a one-game ban, but striker Chris O'Grady (calf) could be back for boss Danny Wilson's first home game in charge since returning for a second spell at the club.

Winger Paddy McCourt is hoping to shake off a hamstring injury in time.
