Recent respective form guides

Sheffield Wednesday's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While The Owls have scored 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Barnsley's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Tykes have hit 10 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Sheff. Wed. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 7 points. Barnsley find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 11 points from their 10 matches.
