Barnsley U23s are back in action on Tuesday afternoon as they host Colchester United at the Oakwell Training Ground.

Due to government guidelines, this game will be played behind closed doors.

It is the young Reds’ first game for three weeks after playing out a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United in the South Yorkshire derby at Chesterfield’s Technique Stadium.

Martin Devaney’s side have enjoyed success in this fixture over the past few seasons and are unbeaten in their last four outings against the U’s, scoring 11 goals in the process.

Last time out against Colchester, Barnsley ran out 3-1 winners on home soil with Chris Sang, Dylan Mottley-Henry and Jack Sherlock finding the target in a routine victory.

United travel to South Yorkshire on the back of a 2-0 defeat at home to Ipswich Town last Monday having not lost in their opening three games of the Professional Development League campaign.
