Barnsley manager Simon Davey could hand a first-team debut to 15-year-old striker Reuben Noble-Lazarus at Ipswich.

Noble-Lazarus and fellow youngster Jamil Adam will both be included in the Tykes' squad for the clash at Portman Road, with Davey hinting they could start on the substitutes' bench.

Noble-Lazarus, who has just turned 15, scored a hat-trick over the weekend for Barnsley's Under-18s, for whom he made his first appearance aged 12.

Captain Brian Howard is no longer available as he looks to complete his move to Sheffield United, while Davey must decide whether to stick with Heinz Muller in goal or recall Luke Steele.

Meanwhile Davey, who has no other new injury or suspension problems, denied he had been in talks with either Sunderland forward David Connolly or veteran Hull striker Dean Windass.
