Barnsley will be desperate to return to winning ways tonight as they face Middlesbrough at the Riverside.

The Tykes are embarking on a dreadful run of form at the moment, losing their last four games and failing to win in 10.

Markus Schopp is a man skating on incredibly thin ice, then, and a disappointing result tonight could force the club into making a decision on his future.

The Austrian, then, will be keen to guide his side back to winning ways as they prepare to make the long journey up to Teesside.

Quiz: Did these 25 Barnsley transfers actually happen?

Middlesbrough returned to winning ways on home soil at the weekend as they beat Peterborough United, so it won’t be an easy game by any means.

Here, we run you through the Barnsley side we expect to see Schopp field against Boro this evening…

In terms of team news, the likes of Carlton Morris, Josh Benson, Mads Andersen, Liam Kitching and Aapo Halme remain sidelined.

But there has been a positive update from Schopp, who has revealed that summer signing Obbi Oulare is ready to make the squad, having failed to make an appearance for the club so far.

Oulare isn’t ready to play the full 90 minutes but is likely to feature from the bench, which is likely to be the case for Callum Styles too.

We are likely to see a couple of changes being made to freshen things up, though, with Dominik Frieser likely to come in, and Ben Williams in for Jordan Williams too.
