It's a tough challenge for Charlton's injury hit squad as they face Barnsley at Oakwell tomorrow in a fifth versus fourth clash. Lee Bowyer is struggling to field 11 fit players. Eight first team players are missing through injury or suspension.
Barnsley have not been defeated at home this season, winning six and losing five, scoring 17 goals and conceding seven.
On Boxing Day they defeated league bullies Peterborough 2-0. Last Saturday a victory at Blackpool ended a winless December.
The bookies have the Tykes favourites to win with a home win 7/10, draw 18/5 and Charlton win 18/5.
Manager Daniel Stendel favours high-intensity pressing and playing with flair.
If you are thinking of going by train, bear in mind that Northern Rail who serve Barnsley are having one of their regular Saturday strikes.
