Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel has suggested that injured duo Alex Mowatt and Cameron McGeehan should be back fit in time for their meeting with Leeds United on Sunday 15th of September.
Both players were absent for the Tykes’ 0-0 draw with Wigan Athletic on Saturday after sustaining injuries in training but they look set to return after the international break.
Speaking to the Sheffield Star after the game, Stendel suggested Mowatt and McGeehan were two of a number of players that he expected to return for the visit of the Whites.
He said: “We heard in the morning that Alex (Mowatt) had no chance to play and Cameron (McGeehan) couldn’t play as of Friday.
“I think Alex can play in two weeks, he has a little bit of pain in his neck and he cannot move his neck.
“Cameron has an injury from defending set-pieces in training.
“I hope both will be back in two weeks, as well as Cauley Woodrow and Jacob Brown, then we will have more options.”
Due to the international break, Barnsley are not set to play until two weeks after Stendel made these comments, which means all the players he mentioned should be fit.
This is great news for the Tykes as you feel they will need a full-strength side if they’re to get a result against Leeds.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have won every single one of their away games this season and will likely be determined to get a result after their loss to Swansea City on the weekend.
Barnsley have not won since they beat Fulham on the opening weekend, so a visit from their Yorkshire rivals looks a real test.
