TEAM NEWS: Burnley v Barnsley

First published in Football

ALEX Kacaniklic makes his home debut as manager Sean Dyche keeps faith with the starting XI from Saturday's 1-0 win at Charlton Athletic for tonight's visit of Barnsley.

The Swede, on loan from Fulham until the end of the season, went straight into the side at The Valley just hours after completing his move.

Chris McCann returns to take his place on the bench after missing the weekend game through injury.

The midfielder limped off in the second half of last Tuesday's defeat to Huddersfield, which leaves Burnley are looking for their first home win in four attempts tonight.

BURNLEY: Lee Grant, Kieran Trippier, Kevin Long, Jason Shackell, Danny Lafferty, Marvin Bartley, David Edgar, Alex Kacaniklic, Junior Stanislas, Charlie Austin, Martin Paterson.

Subs: Brian Jensen, Sam Vokes, Danny Ings, Chris Mccann, Joseph Mills, Brian Stock, Keith Treacy.

BARNSLEY: Luke Steele, Scott Wiseman, Stephen Foster, Martin Cranie, Tom Kennedy, Jacob Mellis, David Perkins, Kelvin Etuhu, Chris O'Grady, Marlon Harewood, Chris Dagnall.

Subs: Lukas Lidakevicius, Jason Scotland, Rory Delap, Jim O'Brien, Bobby Hassell, Tomasz Cywka, Ryan Tunnicliffe.
