THE MATCH

Two of League One’s form sides go head-to-head on Tuesday night at Oakwell.

League leaders Wednesday are unbeaten in 23 games, while the Tykes also boast an excellent run of results - unbeaten in 11, with seven wins from their previous eight games.

The South Yorkshire derby is one of two midweek fixtures taking place in the division, as Plymouth also head to Accrington on the same night.

Barnsley’s run since late January has catapulted the Reds into the automatic promotion reckoning.

After picking up a 1-0 win over Wycombe at Adams Park on Saturday, Barnsley are eight points off second spot but have two games in hand.

The Owls were held to a 1-1 draw by Bolton on Friday night at Hillsborough and now face three consecutive games on the road, starting with the Tykes.

Darren Moore’s side then head to Forest Green on Sunday and then Cheltenham a week on Wednesday.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: Dominic Iorfa returns from suspension after serving his one match ban on Friday night.

The defender picked up two yellow cards in our 1-0 win over Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

Manager Michael Duff will have the same group from which to select that picked up a 1-0 win over Wycombe on Saturday.
