How many sides in League One can boast a player with Champions League experience? Stephen McPhail is Barnsley‘s glamour attacking option, along with Paul Reid and Barry Conlon, while Matt Carbon and new club captain Tony Vaughan will shore up the defence.
The newly named Milton Keynes Dons were forced to field inexperienced sides last season and more of the same is expected in this campaign. They have made a good signing in Izale McLeod, who spent time on loan at Sheffield United last season, but overall, the Dons could find life tough in a division one tier lower than they were outclassed in last season.
