Barnsley to make late call on Diaby fitness

Barnsley will make a late decision on defender Bambo Diaby for Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Brentford.

Diaby has missed the last three games after damaging an ankle against Luton last month, but the 21-year-old has stepped up training this week and is in contention to return.

Fellow centre-back Aapo Halme should be available after coming off injured during the 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest last week.

Full-backs Dimitri Cavare and Ben Williams, who serves the last match of a three-game suspension, remain out as Barnsley seek a first win since the opening day of the season.

Brentford’s visit could see the return to Oakwell of Ethan Pinnock.

The London-born defender played a key role in Barnsley’s promotion from League One last season before completing a £3million move to west London.

Injured Danish defenders Mads Bech Sorensen and Luka Racic are again the only absentees from the Bees squad.

Brentford have scored only five league goals this season and Greek striker Nikolaos Karelis is pushing for a first start after coming off the bench against Stoke last weekend to make his debut.
