Speaking ahead of the game, Whites striker Patrick Bamford has been talking up teammate Joe Gelthardt, and comparing him to England's record goalscorer Wayne Rooney.
He claimed: “He reminds me - I don't want to say the same level as Rooney - but he is the same kind of build as Rooney was. A stocky lad, great finisher.
“It's just whether or not he kind of sticks with it, he is young, isn't he, so he can look good at that age and not make anything of it. It's up to him to kind of push on.”
Meanwhile, down in the Championship, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United, and Huddersfield Town all look set to be embroiled in a fierce relegation battle that could go down to the wire.
Conversely, Valerien Ismael's Barnsley continue to fly up the second-tier table, and find themselves in with a real chance of making the play-offs, following a stunning run of form which has seen them win six league games on the trot and move to seventh in the table.
