Talking on Beavon and McCrory, Nigel Clough said: "We're not sure if they're going to be fit for Saturday yet, but we're giving them as long as we can."

He added: "I think they're both about 50/50 at this stage but we'll do everything we can to get them out there.

Irish midfielder Conor Hourihane became a prized asset of the Reds' XI after an outstanding season for Barnsley throughout 2015/16

Hourihane joined the Reds from Plymouth Argyle for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract in June 2014 and soon showed just how deadly his left can be.

The 24-year-old midfielder from Cork made 142 appearances for the Pilgrims over three seasons and had been their Club captain since the 2012/13 campaign.

Nigel Clough

"They are in with a shout of making the play offs so they will see this game as one they’ve got to get something from.

"I think it’s a good game for us both at this stage, there is lots to play for.

"If you think not so long back Barnsley were in higher leagues so you look at the size of club they are and that’s what we’re contending with.

"It should be a good game."
