Barnsley will be without Aidy White for the home game against Fulham as the defender requires surgery.

White has missed the last three games due to a gluteal problem and will be sidelined until after next month's international break.

James Bree is fit again following a recent hamstring injury and in contention as the Reds bid to bounce back to winning ways after four Championship games without a victory.

Saidy Janko (thigh) is still out and fellow winger Ryan Williams (groin) remains a long-term absentee.

Barnsley are unbeaten in seven home league games against Fulham (W5 D2), although this will be the first clash at Oakwell since February 2001.

Barnsley have conceded more goals via set-pieces (including penalties) this season than any other Championship side (8).

The Tykes have scored a league-high six goals via substitutes this term.

Fulham defender Ryan Fredericks could be involved for the first time this season.

The former Tottenham full-back required surgery after suffering an ankle injury during pre-season, but he has now resumed full training.

Midfielder Kevin McDonald will miss out again as he completes a three-match ban.

Winger Floyd Ayite remains a doubt with an ankle problem.

The last time we visited Barnsley was in February 2001, during the Premiership promotion year, when we were held 0-0.

Fulham have failed to score on each of their last five visits to Oakwell; the last Fulham players to score there were Jeff Hopkins, Robert Wilson and Gordon Davies in October 1982.

Last time out, Fulham became the first Championship team since Huddersfield (vs Fulham in March 2015) to miss two penalties and then go on to lose the match (lost 1-2 vs QPR).

Fulham are unbeaten in their last five away matches, winning two and drawing three.
