Barnsley v Cardiff preview

Emile Sinclair, Jonathan Greening and Akos Buzsaky could all

make their Barnsley debuts in Saturday’s Championship clash with

Cardiff at Oakwell.

Striker Sinclair has joined on loan from Peterborough until

January 19, while midfielders Greening (Nottingham Forest) and

Hungary international midfielder Buzsaky (Portsmouth), who could

both start for Keith Hill’s side, will stay at Oakwell until the

end of the year.

Another recent loan signing from Nottingham Forest, Marcus

Tudgay, is hoping to retain his place up front alongside Craig

Davies, who marked his return from a five-game absence due to a

hamstring injury last week with the equaliser in the draw at

Bolton.

Hill has no new injury or suspension worries, but midfielder

David Perkins remains sidelined with the hamstring problem that has

kept him out for the last three matches.

Former Tottenham and Middlesbrough forward Mido is hoping to

return to the squad as the Tykes chase their first league win in

seven matches.

Cardiff’s new loan signing Simon Lappin could replace Andrew

Taylor, ruled out with a calf injury, at left-back.

Malky Mackay will also be without Ben Turner (hamstring) and

Kevin McNaughton (thigh).

Meanwhile, Fulham have recalled Kerim Frei from his loan spell

with the Bluebirds after just three games.
