BARNSLEY’S West Stand will reopen for fans for the first time in their rearranged game against Stoke later this month.

The stand was closed in October amid safety concerns - and almost 1,000 season ticket holders were given the option of either a refund or relocation to another part of the ground.

Supporters will be able to return to their seats from January 12 when the Reds take on Stoke City at Oakwell.
