KEY MAN | Not only is Conor Hourihane his side's top scorer this season, he is also one of only two ever-presents for Barnsley in the 15 games that they have played in all competitions so far in the 2014.15 campaign, making him our Key Man for this game.

Former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international Hourihane joined the Tykes for an undisclosed fee from Plymouth Argyle in the summer and has quickly set about repaying his new club's faith in him, finding the net six times already this season and landing the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month accolade for August.

The 23-year-old had found the net just 16 times in three seasons with Argyle prior to his rumoured big-money move to Oakwell but has certainly found his scoring touch this year and although he hasn't found the net since Saturday 20 September, when he scored against Port Vale, he remains one to look out for on Tuesday night.

Whilst he will be keen to add to his goals tally against Notts, Hourihane will also hope to avoid a booking in the match, as he is just one yellow card away from a suspension going into the game.

THE LINK | Notts County midfielder Gary Jones spent three seasons with Barnsley earlier in his career, but having come through the youth ranks at Oakwell it is fellow midfielder Nicky Wroe who provides our link between the two sides for this game.

Yorkshireman Wroe made his first team debut for Barnsley towards the end of the 2002.03 season, having graduated from the club's academy to sign his first professional contract and he would go on to start the next four seasons at Oakwell, before a loan move to Bury towards the end of his stay with the club.

Having spent the majority of the 2007.08 campaign with York City, the midfielder signed for Torquay United for an undisclosed fee at the end of that season and a productive three-year spell at Plainmoor saw him make over 120 appearances for the club, scoring 23 times before going on to spend a season with Shrewsbury Town and then linking up with Preston North End ahead of the 2012.13 season.

It was after two contrasting seasons at Deepdale that the 29-year-old made the move to Meadow Lane, signing a two-year deal, but he has faced stiff competition for a first team place in a strong squad assembled by Manager Shaun Derry so will hope to be involved against his former club on Tuesday night.

Result | Notts County 1-1 Barnsley
Scorers | Parkinson (26) | Betsy (87 pen)

Notts County have conceded just two goals away from home in Sky Bet League 1 this season, so 3/1 seems good odds for Shaun Derry's side to keep a clean sheet at Oakwell, whilst Garry Thompson is 13/2 to score first in the match, having bagged the first hat-trick of his career against Crawley Town at the weekend.
