Team news | Barnsley v Swansea City

First team
Kyle Naughton Stevenage

Steve Cooper makes just one change from Swansea City's win over Watford for their latest Championship assignment at Barnsley.

Kyle Naughton - having returned from a side strain against Stevenage in the FA Cup - starts a league game for the first time since the defeat at Derby before Christmas.

He comes in at the expense of Ryan Manning in the only change to the side that started that victory over the Hornets.

New signing Ben Hamer is named among the substitutes following his move from Huddersfield.

Freddie Woodman starts in goal, with Naughton joining Marc Guehi and Ben Cabango in the Swans back three.

Connor Roberts and Jake Bidwell take the wing-back roles, while Korey Smith, captain Matt Grimes and Jay Fulton will once again form the midfield unit.

In-form forwards Jamal Lowe and Andre Ayew are partnered together in attack, while Joel Latibeaudiere is fit enough for a place on the bench after recovering from a calf injury.

Barnsley: Jack Walton, Callum Styles, Mads Andersen, Callum Brittain, Herbie Kane, Cauley Woodrow, Conor Chaplin, Michael Sollbauer, Alex Mowatt (captain), Victor Adeboyejo, Michal Helik.

Substitutes: Carlton Morris, Luke Thomas, Patrick Schmidt, Tom Sibbick, Romal Palmer, Clarke Oduor, Dominik Frieser, Jasper Moon, Ben Collins.

Swansea City: Freddie Woodman; Kyle Naughton, Ben Cabango, Marc Guehi; Connor Roberts, Korey Smith, Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes (captain), Jake Bidwell; Jamal Lowe, Andre Ayew.

Substitutes: Ben Hamer, Ryan Manning, Wayne Routledge, Liam Cullen, Yan Dhanda, Joel Latibeaudiere, George Byers, Oli Cooper, Jordon Garrick.
