After the frozen pitch Fiasco earlier in the month Barnsley and Birmingham City try again in what   could be a good game with both teams coming into this on the back of good results at the weekend .

Both teams are still trying to cope with injuries to important players but Barnsley manager Keith Hill looks set to keep faith with the same team that finished in there 2-0 home victory over 10 man Portsmouth with new loan signing David Cotterill looking likely to feature at some stage. Barnsley should be coming into this in confident mood after winning there last 2 home games scoring 5 goals in the process.

Mean while Birmingham City look set to make a few changes to the team that got such a great result away at Chelsea and with Chris Hughton looking set to bring back Burke, King, Caldwell to the starting line up , with Carr, Zigic, N’Daw, still carrying knocks and looking unlikely to feature .

Birmingham City unbeaten in last 14 games will be looking to extend that run with a victory over there South Yorkshire rivals which would be a big help in there push towards promotion back to the premier league at the first attempt.
