Stephen Dawson's return to fitness has been like a £500,000 signing, according to Barnsley manager David Flitcroft.
The 27-year-old Irish midfielder was one of the Reds' best players in the difficult first half of the season before a knee injury caused him to miss most of the fantastic run which saw them climb out of the bottom three.
He was an unused substitute for the wins over Brighton and Watford last week and Flitcroft is thrilled to have him back.
The manager said: "We have got plans for Daws over the international break to get him ready for the Wednesday game. Having him back is like signing a £500,000 player."
Dawson admitted he won't be guaranteed a place in the team straight away.
He told the Chronicle: "The lads have been incredible and they probably want to keep playing after the two wins last week. I am doing loads of extra hours at the club and I am going to play for the under 21s (at Leicester) next Tuesday so I will hopefully be able to play some part in the first team over the Easter weekend.”
