Despite their low league position, Barnsley are the form team in the Championship have secured 16 points out of their last 18 available in league. Barnsley’s hot streak is even better in all competitions, with David Flitcroft’s side having won 8 of their last 9 games (the other was a draw) in all competitions.
Barnsley, who face Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup next month, will arrive at Bristol City fully confident of claiming the win.
Luke Steele will continue in the Barnsley goal, Rory Delap will anchor the midfield, while Marlon Harewood, Chris Dagnall and Jason Scotland offer the striking power up-top.
As for Bristol City, the atmosphere is not so rosy for Sean O’Driscoll’s side.
Coming into the game off of back-to-back defeats to Cardiff and Crystal Palace, the Robins are anxiously hoping for 36-year-old captain Louis Carey to make the starting XI after suffering a knee injury several weeks ago. Striker Sam Baldock is definitely out with a calf injury.
The silver lining for City is their recent home form. Ipswich, Watfod and Nottingham Forest have all fallen at Ashton Gate in recent weeks, and the scalp of Barnsley is certainly not out of the question.
