BARNSLEY are hoping to complete a Yorkshire derby double today, Saturday, when they travel to npower Championship rivals Leeds United.

Keith Hill’s men will go to Elland Road on a high after they cruised to a 2-0 win over struggling Doncaster Rovers at Oakwell last Saturday.

Craig Davies was the hero for the Tykes, scoring the first on half-an-hour before doubling the lead with a neat finish on 64 minutes.

Rovers’ misery was compounded by the late sending-off of Adam Lockwood but the victory edged Barnsley away from the relegation zone and closer to the play-off places.
