'Let's go out and win it for Iain'
BARNSLEY’S players and management will do ‘everything in their power’ to beat Watford at Oakwell tomorrow – for their injured colleague Iain Hume. The Reds’ joint-top scorer faces at least six months on the sidelines after suffering a fractured skull – and undergoing an emergency operation – following a much-publicised clash with Sheffield United captain Chris Morgan last Saturday. “Iain is very popular here. We will go out on Saturday and try and get three points against Watford for Iain," said boss Simon Davey

Oakwell Club consider legal action over horror injury
BARNSLEY FC are strongly considering taking legal action over the elbow-led incident that resulted in Iain Hume needing an emergency operation for a fractured skull and internal bleeding. The Oakwell Club’s lawyers will meet with Hume’s representatives on Monday to discuss legal moves. The decision will ultimately rest with the player but the fall-out from Hume’s clash with Sheffield United skipper Chris Morgan could yet end up in the civil courts.

Coulson on comeback trail
BARNSLEY striker Michael Coulson made a goalscoring return to action in a reserve fixture at Grimsby Town on Wednesday. Coulson, back after suffering a serious cruciate knee injury at the end of April, got on the scoresheet in his 70-minute workout, but the Reds’ second string, which also featured Jacob Butterfield, Simon Heslop, who had been on loan at the Mariners, and Reuben Noble-Lazarus, went down 4-1. The young Barnsley team was: Letheren, Tienan, Reffin, Branson, Grundy, Heslop, Hibbert, Butterfield, Coulson, Noble-Lazarus, Taylor.

Video evidence going to FA
BARNSLEY FC have been in the process of compiling video evidence of Sheffield United’s elbow tactics last Saturday – and the indecisiveness of referee Andy D’Urso – to send to the Football Association, as part of their complaint over the injury to striker Iain Hume.
