Barnsley continue their playoff push in League One this weekend as they take on Bristol Rovers at Oakwell.
Barnsley currently sit 6th in League One with twelve wins, seven draws and eight losses from twenty-four games this season.
The Tykes are in good shape coming into this game and are just about making good on the preseason expectations of them.
Their form has been good of late, as they come into this game unbeaten in their last six games having won three and drawn three of their last six matches.
Their most recent game saw them held to a pretty disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Wigan Athletic, with Devante Cole's first-half goal cancelled out by Wigan in the 87th minute.
Giving up two points with just three minutes of normal time remaining was less than ideal for a side trying to fend off a couple of chasing teams below them, but the result still maintained their unbeaten run so they can take the point and move on.
They're unbeaten on home soil in their last seven games, but having drawn four of those they'll feel they've not quite been up to scratch in front of their own fans.
Barnsley still have room to grow this season but they need to start collecting wins at a faster rate having dropped too many points in draws in recent games, so this one is verging on a must-win for them.
Bristol Rovers currently sit 10th in League Two with nine wins, seven draws and eight losses from twenty-four games this season.
The Pirates have improved in form over the course of the last few weeks after dismissing manager Joey Barton, having struggled massively at the start of the season under his guidance, so they'll be hoping to keep building and rise up the table.
Their form is decent, as they come into this game having won three and lost two of their lase five games in the league.
Their most recent game in the league saw them lose in a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Wycombe Wanderers, but they did make amends somewhat in a commendable 1-1 draw away at Championship side Norwich City in the FA Cup last weekend.
Grant Ward equalised five minutes after Norwich's first-half opener and the game remained level for over seventy minutes in a performance the visiting Pirates can be proud of.
They'll firmly believe they can notch three points here and while it'll be tough it's by no means out of their reach.
For our Barnsley vs. Bristol Rovers prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
