Barnsley v Sunderland

Last updated : 09 March 2007 By Rob Miles (barnsley Boy)

Barnsley have received a major boost in their quest to halt Sunderland's march towards the Premiership at Oakwell tomorrow with the news that key men Carlos Edwards and Dwight Yorke are likely to be missing from Roy Keane's side.

Edwards is definitely out- possibly for the season- after suffering a shoulder injury in the 2-1 win at West Brom last weekend whilst York - who retired from Trinidad & Tobago this week- is a major doubt with a hamstring injury.

The Reds also have injury worries. Dwayne Mattis and Ritchie Jones are out whilst Bobby Hassell is a doubt.

Sunderland are going to be backed by around 7,700 fans who are arriving on over 90 coaches! This is the main reason why Kick-Off time has been moved forward to 1:30pm
