NEW loan signings Danny Drinkwater and Cameron Park have bolstered Barnsley’s squad ahead of the Tykes’ visit to Millwall in the npower Championship today, Saturday.

The Reds will be buoyed by their first win of the Championship season last weekend but the trip to the capital is always a tough one and Keith Hill’s team will need to improve defensively to get anything out of the game.

Manchester United midfielder Drinkwater, 21, who has previously been on loan at Huddersfield Town, will be at Oakwell until early January 2012 while Middlesbrough’s Park, 19, has signed a three-month loan deal.

Elsewhere, Leeds United travel to Ipswich Town today hoping to build on Tuesday evening’s 2-1 Carling Cup second round win over Doncaster.

Lee Clark’s Huddersfield Town will be hoping to forget their midweek Carling Cup exit at Cardiff City and bag three points at the Galpharm Stadium where Wycombe are the visitors today.

It is back to cup action on Tuesday when the Terriers are at Northampton Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy first round.
