Manager Darren Moore says a decision will be made at the 11th hour as to whether Hutchinson will feature or not.

Chey Dunkley’s hamstring injury will see the defender sidelined for a period of weeks.

Elsewhere there are no fresh injury or suspension concerns.

Barnsley: Alex Mowatt is available to feature against the Owls on Saturday.

The Reds skipper was sent off during the 3-1 win away at Wycombe but the club have won their appeal and the three-match ban has been overturned.
