Barnsley have only kept one clean sheet away from home all season, surely we are guaranteed goals today?
He last officiated Bolton in August when they were defeated 1-0 at home by QPR
Today's referee is James Adcock from Nottinghamshire
Hutton does go on to say...
“It’s been fairly easy to slot into the side. I already knew Zat Knight because he’s from the Birmingham area and I’d previously played against a couple of the boys.
“Sometimes it takes you a while to settle at a new club, especially when you come on loan, but the team have made it so easy for me and I’m already comfortable around the club.
“Being here is a great opportunity for me – hopefully I’ll be able to continue playing regularly and to the best of my ability which, in turn, will help Bolton climb up the league table.”
With Moritz (7) and Beckford (6) playing a huge part in that
Big interview with Alan Hutton in the pre-match programme which barely mentions his time at Wanderers, nor his time at Aston Villa post-Alex McLeish.
Although Freedman has made six changes today, the starting 11 still have scored 22 league goal between them this season
@MarcIles What odds that team/setup is wholly different to the one DF finishes with? 4132? Time for trotter to put in a performance.— @mdkirky 12 April 2014
@MarcIles the tinker man at it again! Why change a winning team. We better win or he will feel the backlash COYWM #bwfc— @brickinthewall1 12 April 2014
@MarcIles not sure about playing wingers, much prefer the ball on the ground played through the middle— @tom_rhys 12 April 2014
But their main threat comes in the form of 6ft 2' striker Chris O'Grady who has over one third of the Yorkshire outfits total goals this season with 13
And ex-Bayern Munich midfielder Dale Jennings has netted in both of those away games
The Tykes have scored seven goals in their last two away games
Barnsley subs: Turner, Hunt, Proschwitz, Mellis, McCourt, Hassell, Cranie
Barnsley starting XI: Steele, Kennedy, M'voto, Nyatanga, McLaughlin, Etuhu, Lawrence, Dawson, Jennings, Cywka, O'Grady
Bay City Rollers playing to a still-empty Reebok at the moment. Quite surreal.
@MarcIles it must be straws out of a hat, if our team was ever leaked to the opposition Danny Wilson would think it was April fools— @BwfcCallum 12 April 2014

@MarcIles very strange team. And poor imo.— @chris_moorcroft 12 April 2014
So that's six changes from the other night at Doncaster. And perhaps the strongest bench I've seen since Wanderers came down from the Prem.
BWFC subs: Lonergan, Knight, Wheater, Medo, Danns, Mason, Jutkiewicz.
BWFC team: Bogdan, Hutton, Mills, Ream, Baptiste, Trotter, Spearing, Hall, Lee, Moritz, Beckford.

As you may be aware it's the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster, with today's game kicking off seven minutes later than normal in recognition of the lives that were lost on that tragic day. It is entirely fitting that the anniversary of the occasion should be marked in this way and I'm sure that all fans will honour the silence that is due to take place today.Dougie Freedman in his programme notes
Our fans can appreciate some of the changes in our starting line-up today, as the last two away games have placed a huge physical demand on the players.Dougie Freedman in his programme notes
Wanderers haven't lost at home to Barnsley since May, 1994, that's a run of seven games.
Good afternoon folks. I'm back in the saddle this afternoon after Dave Pye swooped in and took the last two wins. I accept no blame if it's back to drudgery today, though.
