Preston will be looking for a third win on the spin before ending their season with a trip to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest next weekend.

Barnsley Preview – Another away triumph for the Tykes?

Barnsley have been the surprise package in the Championship this season. The Tykes survived by the skin of their teeth last term, but the Yorkshire side will be in the play-offs at the end of this campaign.

Since taking over back in October, Valerien Ismael has turned Barnsley from relegation candidates into promotion hopefuls. They have been in exceptional form since the turn of the year, winning 13 of their 22 Championship matches in 2021.
