Barnsley will be looking for another three points towards their play-off push with a win over relegation-threatened Derby County.

The Tykes are currently on a seven-game winning streak, and another win added on would move them four points clear of seventh place in the Championship.

Meanwhile, a win would take the away side Derby nine points clear of the relegation zone, as they look to maintain their place in the division for yet another year.

Team news

Barnsley have only two players that will be absent in defenders Liam Kitching and Ben Williams.

Derby are still without goalkeeper David Marshall after injuring himself against Nottingham Forest, along with Tom Lawrence, Curtis Davies and Krystian Bielik.

Predicted lineups

Barnsley:

Collins; Sibbick, Andersen, Helik, Brittain, Styles, Mowatt, Palmer, Woodrow, Morris, Dike.

Derby:

Roos; Wisdom, Mengi, Clarke, Buchanan, Shinnie, Bird, Knight, Roberts, Jozwiak, Kazim-Richards.

Ones to watch

Callum Styles

The 20-year-old has been a revelation for Barnsley this season, with his talent attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs in January. His passing and defensive work has come on leaps and bounds since his positional change from centre midfielder to left wing-back.

Colin Kazim-Richards

The Turk is the clubs' top scorer this season and that doesn't tell the whole story, he has been a leader since coming in and only brings positivity into the dressing room, becoming one of their most influential players.

Previous meetings

The last time these two sides met was earlier in the season when Barnsley won 2-0 at Pride Park, with goals from Conor Chaplin and Victor Adeboyejo securing victory.

How to watch

This match will kick off at 19:00 GMT on Wednesday, March 10, and is available to watch by purchasing an iFollow pass for £10.
