Barnsley will be looking to pull away from the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone as they play host to in-form Millwall.

 The Tykes currently sit in 21st place in the Sky Bet Championship, just three points above Birmingham City in the race for survival.

 Millwall have risen up to 10th with their recent form. Neil Harris’ side could be making a late charge for the top six, just six points behind Middlesbrough who occupy the last spot.

Barnsley’s form has been inconsistent this year, with the side from Yorkshire appearing to never be able to get going. The loss of manager Paul Heckingbottom to rivals Leeds United has seen the Tykes stagger to a relegation battle.

 Their last point came in a fiercely contested 1-1 draw at Oakwell against Norwich City. ‘Sky Bet Championship Player Of The Month’ Oliver McBurnie put Barnsley in charge before Josh Murphy was able to score an equaliser.

 Millwall come in to this fixture on the back of an 11 game unbeaten run, with their last loss coming against Norwich City back on New Years Day.

 The Lions were able to collect all three points on Saturday with a win against fellow promotion chasing side Brentford at The Den.

 George Saville put the home side in front within a minute with Brentford unable to respond for the rest of the 90.

 It will be Barnsley who will be looking to complete a double over their opponents after they recorded an impressive win at The Den.

 A brace from former Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw either side of half time was followed up by a Mamadou Thiam strike late on secured the points.

Lee Gregory scored an equaliser in first half stoppage time but that appeared to prove nothing as a consolation for the newly promoted side.
