Keith Hill has used five different captains in Barnsley’s six games so far this season but has hinted that Scott Wiseman will keep the armband until the current injury crisis is over.
Jim McNulty began the season as captain but picked up an injury and was replaced by David Perkins who then hobbled off in the 3-1 loss at Wolves and handed the armband to Stephen Foster. Striker Craig Davies captained the side in the 5-1 loss at Brighton and Wiseman has been the skipper in the cup loss at Swansea and the home win over Bristol City.
Hill told the Chronicle: “Scott has been exceptional in taking the responsibility of being captain and moving from right-back to centre-back. The captain for the season is Jim McNulty but, with him and David Perkins both injured, Scott has got his just rewards.
“I have had to change the captaincy around this season. It can lie heavily on certain people but Scott has thrived on it.”
