Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson admitted that “something has to change” after seeing his team thumped 4-0 by Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday.
It was Posh’s third successive defeat and meant they have taken just one point from their last five matches.
Nonetheless, thanks to Reading’s points deduction, they know that they can move out of the bottom three if they win on Saturday and the Royals lose to Swansea City.
Twelve of Peterborough’s 15 points this season have come at the Weston Homes Stadium, but they do have the Championship’s worst defence having conceded 38 goals; that is five more than anyone else and an average of exactly two per game.
Wednesday’s heavy defeat could see Peterborough switch to a four-man defence, allowing Nathan Thompson to revert to right-back.
Darren Ferguson admitted that Oliver Norburn had been sick “five or six times” before the game against Blackburn in which he lasted an hour, but the midfielder should be fine for Saturday.
Joel Randall could be involved in the matchday squad for the first time since September after recovering from a thigh injury.
Poya Asbaghi went with a 4-3-3 formation for his first game in charge of Barnsley and should do so again, perhaps with a few personnel changes.
Claudio Gomes, Aaron Leya Iseka and Carlton Morris are all pushing for starts, with the latter two coming off the bench in midweek.
Centre-back pair Liam Kitching and Aapo Halme could be involved after returning to training this week after injuries.
