Encouraging Barnsley injury update emerges ahead of club’s clash with Middlesbrough

Published

on

Barnsley are set to be able to call upon the services of Callum Styles for tomorrow’s clash with Middlesbrough in the Championship.

The Tykes could also welcome Obbi Oulare back to their match-day squad as he is in contention to make his return to action in this particular fixture.

Styles missed Barnsley’s clash with Reading last weekend due to injury but is now set to feature against a Boro side who are currently 12th in the Championship standings.

Oulare has yet to make an appearance for the Tykes since joining the club on a permanent deal during the summer transfer window.

The forward has been struggling with a back injury in recent months and thus has been forced to watch on from the sidelines at Oakwell.

In Oulare’s absence, Barnsley have made an underwhelming start to the 2021/22 campaign in the second-tier.

The Tykes have only won one of their opening 12 league fixtures and are currently on a four-game losing streak at this level.

With the pressure starting to build on head coach Markus Schopp, it will be intriguing to see whether the Austrian is able to turn things around at Barnsley.

Has the club ever played in blue?

Ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium, an update has emerged regarding the fitness of Styles and Oulare.

As reported by Yorkshire Post journalist Leon Wobschall, Schopp has confirmed that both players could be involved for the club on Wednesday.

The Verdict

This is an encouraging update for Barnsley as Schopp will be able to call upon two players who will be determined to make a positive impact for the club in the coming weeks.

Styles has already shown glimpses of his talent in the 11 appearances that he has made for the Tykes this season and thus will be confident in his ability to deliver the goods against Middlesbrough if he is brought into the starting eleven for this fixture.

Meanwhile, Oulare will be hoping to challenge the likes of Cauley Woodrow and Aaron Leya Iseka for a place in the side.

Having provided seven direct goal contributions in 42 games for Belgian side Standard Liege, it will be fascinating to see whether the forward is able to adapt to life in the Championship.
