Last week, there were suggestions that Steve Morison may be removed from his position as interim boss at Cardiff despite having only recently taken on the role.
However, Sunday’s 2-1 victory over promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest should go some way to easing any pressure, the Bluebirds now sitting six points clear of the drop zone.
Things may change should Cardiff succumb to rivals Barnsley later this week, but Morison will feel that he deserves an opportunity to get the most out of the array of new arrivals in South Wales.
On the back of the performance against Forest, Morison will give consideration to selecting the same Cardiff XI from that match.
However, Isaak Davies is in contention to replace Max Watters after scoring as a substitute, while Will Vaulks could provide fresh legs in midfield.
The likes of Aden Flint and Marlon Pack are expected to remain among the replacements.
After pushing Bournemouth at the weekend, Asbaghi is unlikely to make many alterations to his Barnsley starting lineup.
At a time when the Tykes have a mounting injury list, midfielder Josh Benson is seemingly at the front of the queue when it comes to potential recalls.
Barnsley possible starting lineup:
Collins; Andersen, Helik, Moon; Williams, Palmer, Wolfe, Styles, Vita; Iseka, Cole
Cardiff City possible starting lineup:
Smithies; Ng, Morrison, McGuinness; Drameh, Doyle, Ralls, Wintle, Doughty; Davies, Hugill

Morison got an instant contribution out of Jordan Hugill, who netted within six minutes of his debut, while Alfie Doughty made a solid impression at left wing-back.
In the long term, Morison will have to improve on a return of 15 points from 13 league matches, but there are signs that Cardiff can do enough to keep themselves away from the relegation zone going forward.
