Wednesday’s Championship clash with South Yorkshire rivals Barnsley is set to be given the green light tonight after an improvement in the weather conditions.

The club called a pitch inspection for lunchtime today following the severe weather conditions throughout Sunday night and yesterday.

But a decrease in expected overnight snow has allowed the undersoil heating at Hillsborough keep the snow off the pitch.

And a decision is now expected to be made about the safety of both sets of fans in and around the ground before the match will officially get the go-ahead.
