Barnsley have striker worries

Barnsley have worries over two of their strikers, but it looks as if they might be fit for Saturday: Sweating on fitness

Barnsley are currently 3rd in the table and 5th in the form table. Charlton are 11th and 8th respectively. Barnsley have won four of their matches away from home, drawn one and lost one.

Indeed, Barnsley have the best away record in the country and are particularly strong defensively. They were unfortunate to be relegated from the Championship last season: CAS Trust preview

Last Saturday they beat Luton 3-2 at home. Luton claim they were denied a point when they were wrongly flagged for offside.

The Football League Paper commented: 'If teams won points for style, both Luton and Barnsley would be playing in the Championship next season. This was a quality contest between two sides determined to press high and play low, a fabulous advert for League One. The ferocity of their press and the quality of their passing made the Tykes look like a Championship side in waiting.'

Not much chance for Charlton then! Odds (Bet 365): Barnsley, 23/20; Charlton, 5/2; Draw 13/5.

Referee James Linington, most will remember him earlier this season in the 1-0 defeat to Peterborough at home on a Tuesday night where he gave them a dubious penalty and booked Lee Boywer.
