Robins names unchanged 18

Town Manager Mark Robins has named an unchanged starting line up for today’s Sky Bet Championship match at Doncaster Rovers.

The decision means that both Oliver Norwood and Murray Wallace will reach career landmarks.

Norwood, who represented Northern Ireland in midweek, will make his 100th career league start, whilst Wallace will make his 50th career league appearance.

Elsewhere, Nahki Wells will continue in attack with Danny Ward providing the support and Keith Southern will continue in place of the injured Jonathan Hogg.
‘Keeper Alex Smithies, who turned 24 on Wednesday, keeps his ever-present record this season and will be protected by a back four of Paul Dixon, Anthony Gerrard, Wallace and Calum Woods. Adam Clayton, Oliver Norwood and Southern will be Town’s force in central midfield, whilst Ward and Adam Hammill will provide the width. Wells will look to carry on from his Barnsley performance, which saw him create four goals.

Town’s team vs. Barnsley:
1. Alex Smithies (c)
2. Calum Woods
3. Paul Dixon
4. Oliver Norwood
8. Adam Clayton
11. Danny Ward
