With both Barnsley and Queens Park Rangers now guranteed a spot in the 2010-11 N-power Championship, there will be little at stake.
The superhoops are chasing their first and only chance of getting a double this season against a Barsley side that have failed to win in their last 8 games. The bad run fo from has seen the Tykes fall from the top half of the table down to 18th.
With the QPR manager making it clear that he would like to change things at W12, the players will be looking to impress Neils Warnock to keep their place at Loftus road next season.
Last time out, Barnsley came to Loftus Road to face an in-form QPR who demolished an average Barnsley side. The memory of the 5-2 defeat may trigger a defiant response from the Tykes.
Swansea 3-1 Barnsley
Barnsley team: Steele, Shotton, Foster, Moore, Potter, Devaney (Noble-Lazarus 80), Colace, Doyle (Hassell 68), Hammill, Hume (Adam 53), Gray.
Subs: Preece, Macken, Butterfield, Thompson.
QPR 1 - 0 Watford
QPR Team: Radek Cerny, Mikele Leigertwood, Peter Ramage, Kaspars Gorkss, Dusko Tosic, Alejandro Damián Faurlín, Ákos Buzsáky (Joe Oastler 71), Hogan Ephraim, Rowan Vine, Adel Taarabt (Lee Cook 41), Antonio German (Jay Simpson 73)
Barnsley are likely to be without loanees Emil Hallfredsson (broken foot) and Carl Dickinson (knee). Two of the Tykes key players Anderson de Silva and Daniel Bogdanovic will be assessed before the game for thigh and hamstring injuries respectively.
Barnsley striker Daniel Bogdanovic has been identified as the one to watch by Vital QPR's newest journalist, DanielQPR. To read his profile Click Here >>>
To add to the long term injuries of Mahon, Rowlands, Stewart and Conolly the Superhoops have had several players injured against Watford. Faurlin, Vine, German, Buzsaky and Taarabt are not expected to be risked for the game at Oakwell. QPR will be expected to field a few youth players trying to earn a place in Neil Warnocks plans for QPR.
Ramage has been rejuvenated as a central defender and has put in two good performances at the heart of the QPR defence. The defender will be looking help QPR get their third successive clean sheet and fourth of the season. There has been no doubt of the defenders passion and commitment on the pitch but his ability has been questioned by the QPR fans. Having been given his opportunity to play in his natural position the defender has not failed to impress. Ramage will be looking to keep up the good form and cement his place in Warnocks plans for QPR.
