EFL: Barnsley vs NFFC

At home, Barnsley was standing at the bottom of the table with 4 points behind the safety team, who needed to cut the circuit 4 times in a row before not winning to hold on to his fragile relegation hope. But in this penultimate round, they must welcome Nottingham Forest, who is determined to keep in the promoted play-off group and rediscover the winning flavor after 4 consecutive rounds.

Barnsley had an impressive performance against the top team Leeds United on Thursday afternoon, but went blank when the goal in the first half defeated The Tykes. Gerhard Struber's army is 4 points behind the safety team when entering the last 2 matches after they received the 21st defeat this season and did not win the fourth round in a row. 43 points and 4 defenses in a row with 68 goals accompanied by blunt firepower with only 46 shots, the statistics are so bad that Barnsley deserves to return to League One. There have been less than 2.5 goals scored in the last 7 home games of Barnsley (Championship) and they have suddenly kept clean sheets in the last 3 home games (Championship).

Nottingham Forest twice scored an equalizer to score against Swansea from Wales who are trying their best to climb to the top 6. Forest cannot win any of their last 4 matches but still have 5 points more than the team chasing their play-off position. There have been less than 2.5 goals scored in the last 3 away games of Nottingham Forest (Championship) but they have drawn the last 4 away matches. Sabri Lamouchi can make two changes to the trip to Oakwell with attacking midfielder Tiago Silva and winger Joe Lcar both likely to start while right-back Matty Cash is the only confirmed absence. Nottingham are second in the division with 16 matches, only less than Millwall in this clause, Lewis Grabban is their number one striker this season with 20 goals but is 5 points behind the top scorer of the tournament.
