Barnsley v Nottingham Forest - Preview

Barnsley without injured Ben Williams for Nottingham Forest visit

Barnsley will be without defender Ben Williams for their Carabao Cup encounter with Nottingham Forest.

The 21-year-old left-back suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury at the Tykes’ training camp last month and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Attacking midfielder Dominik Frieser could make his debut on Saturday following his arrival from LASK.

Kilian Ludewig has returned to Oakwell on loan after spending the second half of last season with the club and the full-back is in contention to feature.

Luke Freeman is in line to make his Forest debut after signing on loan from Sheffield United last week.

The midfielder joined the Reds until the end of the season, when they could make his stay permanent.

Fellow midfielder Fouad Bachirou, striker Lyle Taylor and defender Tyler Blackett could also make their bows.

Forest will, however, be without Matty Cash after he joined Premier League side Aston Villa on Thursday.

Barnsley v Nottingham Forest

    Barnsley 1 - 0 Nottingham Forest - Match Report

    Date published: 9/5/2020 10:57:01 PM

    Gerhard Struber pleased to be up and running with a win

    Barnsley boss a happy man after Forest victory.

    Barnsley head coach Gerhard Struber was satisfied with his side's 1-0 Carabao Cup victory over Nottingham Forest following Cauley Woodrow's goal early in the second half, but admitted there is room for improvement.

    Woodrow struck in the 49th minute, turning in the rebound after Clarke Oduor's effort came back off a post.

    Woodrow also headed over from a good position after meeting Chaplin's pinpoint cross but his one goal was enough.

    "I think the performance was OK. Many things I see that we must improve but it was a good first step and a good direction," Struber said.

    "The team worked very well with good structure and we created chances.

    "In the end I think it was a deserved win for us and a good feeling for Cauley Woodrow. I think he is a key player in the team and he is a player who can score goals.

    "We had a very good second half with more combinations on the ground.

    "The biggest focus is the Championship and we will be very professional in the EFL Cup. I am happy with the performance and the result.

    "Coronavirus is a never-ending story, but I hope that the supporters come back and that we have the atmosphere in the stadium that everyone wants."

    Jordan Gabriel, making his full Forest debut, shot narrowly wide inside the opening minute.

    Forest's Ryan Yates also threatened early on with a low shot from the edge of the area which was held by Jack Walton.

    Barnsley's first chance fell to Conor Chaplin whose flicked header was tipped over by Brice Samba.

    Chaplin also forced Samba to make a save shortly after the re-start following good work from Woodrow.

    Forest went close when Tyler Blackett's header from a Joao Carvahlo corner was turned wide by Walton.

    Barnsley substitute Dominik Frieser also had a good chance when a ball from Simoes found him unmarked, but his shot was parried by Samba.

    Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi, looking to start afresh after a catastrophic end to the previous season, said: "We started well but unfortunately we didn't create too much and we concede after many bounces inside the box, so small details again.

    "Unfortunately, it was not very positive to start like that but at least they tried. Obviously, we are not ready after just three weeks.

    "It's not good to start the season like that but we need absolutely to not accept to lose and to change the mentality.

    "Under pressure, we never find the right players at the right time and the right place.

    "For me, nobody was 100 per cent ready. It is not good preparation for the beginning of the season.

    "We will go to QPR to try to disturb them a little bit more than we disturbed Barnsley.

    "We prepared the team to be ready today but after three weeks, with the new players, it is not enough. We need to do more, for sure."
