Barnsley have appointed Mark Crossley as the club's new goalkeeping coach.

The 44-year-old ex-Wales keeper left his position as reserve-team coach at Chesterfield at the end of last season.

Tykes boss Danny Wilson recently appointed Chris Hutchings as assistant manager following the departure of Micky Mellon.

Barnsley, currently three points from safety in the Championship, recorded their first victory in four with a 3-1 win over Reading on Tuesday.

However, defender Peter Ramage, who is on loan from Crystal Palace, may not play any further part in their battle against relegation after suffering a hamstring injury in last Saturday's 1-0 home defeat by Bournemouth.

"Scan not great, looks like season over, I'll fight in gym to play part again, until then I'll be #1 fan, giving boys everything to help!" the 30-year-old tweeted.external-link

Ramage has made 24 appearances for the club since arriving at Oakwell in September.
