Barnsley are inches above the drop-zone. The team is struggling for air currently. The Tykes are just one place and 3 points above Birmingham having forged them a few round before winning the direct encounter.

Last round Barnsley took a single point from their home game against Norwich. The team opened the score late in the first half as McBurnie found the net. They could not hold it till the end though as Norwich equalized in the 71st minute. The draw was probably acceptable result for both sides and the teams shared the points.

Millwall are on the rise in recent weeks. The team good performances have seen them climb all the way to 10th place in the table. They are outstanding at home this season, but also started picking up valuable points from the road games recently.

Yet, Millwall’s previous game was yet another home victory. This time the victim was Brentford. The Lions started the game with a bang scoring seconds after the first whistle. Saville was accurate in front of the goal scoring the only one in the game. Millwall looked outstanding at the back keeping Brentford away and held to their victory till the end.
