Barnsley selection news

Barnsley could do with McAtee being available against Bolton as it is a big game at the top of the third tier table.

However, they do have other useful options in his position such as Devante Cole and Sam Cosgrove.

The Tykes landed him on loan from Luton Town last summer and he has since been a hit at Oakwell.

He has made 31 appearances in all competitions for the South Yorkshire outfit and has chipped in with nine goals and three assists.

The Salford-born man is due to return to Kenilworth Road in the summer and the Hatters will have a decision to make regarding what to do with him next then.

He started out at Shrewsbury Town as a youngster and had loan spells with the likes of AFC Telford United, Ashton United and Curzon Ashton to get some experience.

McAtee then left the Shrews on a permanent basis and had two years at Scunthorpe United before linking up with Grimsby Town in 2021.

He impressed with the Mariners and helped them gain promotion from the National League by scoring 16 goals before they sold him to Luton. However, he returned to Blundell Park last term on a temporary basis before linking up with Barnsley last year.
