Mellis missing for Tykes

Last Updated: Fri, 08 Nov 2013 10:04

Barnsley midfielder Jacob Mellis has been ruled out of the derby clash with Doncaster due to an ankle injury.

Mellis damaged ligaments during last Friday's draw at Ipswich and was replaced by Jim O'Brien, who is expected to return to the starting line-up as he went on to win the man-of-the-match award.

Luke Steele remains sidelined with his long-term back injury so on-loan Jack Butland will continue in goal, but otherwise manager David Flitcroft has a full-strength squad to choose from.

Winger Paddy McCourt shook off a gluteal problem in time to start last week and is expected to resume in midfield despite being replaced just after the hour-mark by Kelvin Etuhu.
