Tykes trio miss Hill's Dale return
Barnsley will be without injured trio Mido, Tony Silva and Luke Steele as boss Keith Hill returns to former club Rochdale in the Capital One Cup.
Striker Mido could be out for up to 15 weeks after he suffered a ruptured hamstring in pre-season while fellow new signing Silva (knee) limped off in the friendly draw at Doncaster.
Goalkeeper Steele, who is the Tykes' reigning player of the year, is sidelined with an abdominal injury carried over from the last campaign.
Former Tottenham keeper Ben Alnwick could make his debut in the absence of Steele with Polish midfielder Tomasz Cywka also looking to start the season well after moving from Reading.
Defender Scott Golbourne is likely to miss out through injury but midfielders David Perkins and Stephen Dawson should be in contention for the trip to Spotland.
