The Clarets have fallen out of the automatic promotion spots after four draws in five Championship fixtures, and manager Sean Dyche will be aware that he needs three points to keep in touch with Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers.
With a new manager unlikely to be appointed before Saturday, Micky Mellon and Paul Heckingbottom will remain in charge of the Tykes, and the duo are not expected to make any changes to their starting lineup.
Possible starting lineups
Burnley: Heaton; Trippier, Mee, Long, Shackell; Stock, Arfield, Jones, Treacy, Stanislas; Vokes
Barnsley: Butland; Wiseman, Kennedy, Ramage, Cranie; Perkins, McCourt, Etuhu, Mellis; Tudgay, Cywka
Sports Mole says: 2-1
