Due to international call-ups, Wanderers’ League One match against Barnsley on Saturday, October 14 has been postponed.

In an official statement, the club stated that a replacement date for the game will be announced “in due course.”

Barnsley have enjoyed a good start to the season, currently sitting fifth in League One after winning five of their first nine games.

Following Michael Duff’s transfer to the Championship with Swansea, Neill Collins took over at Oakwell over the summer.

Wanderers faced the Tykes in the play-off semi-final last season, narrowly missing out on a return to Wembley.

Dion Charles cancelled out Nicky Cadden’s opener in the first leg but Liam Kitching got the decisive goal in the return fixture, beating James Trafford with a bullet header after getting on the end of Luca Connell’s cross.

Ian Evatt’s men ran out 3-0 winners at Oakwell in the league several months prior thanks to goals from Dion Charles, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Kyle Dempsey. The hosts played around 80 minutes 10 men after Mads Andersen was shown a straight red card.

Last month, the Whites’ match against Shrewsbury was similarly postponed due to five players being called up for international action.

That game, which was originally set for Saturday, September 9, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, November 7 (7.45pm).

Shrewsbury are now 17th in the table, having collected nine points from their first eight games.

Former Bolton midfielder Matt Taylor took over as manager at New Meadow over the summer, succeeding Steve Cotterill.
