Preview: Barnsley (H)

1 April 2018

The games come thick and fast over the Easter period as Notttingham Forest are back in action on Monday against Barnsley at The City Ground (kick-off 3pm).

Defeat at Millwall on Good Friday brought an end to The Reds' seven game unbeaten run and Aitor Karanka will be hoping for a reaction from his side.

The 2-0 defeat at The Den means it is now four games without a goal and Forest will be keen to end that streak in front of the home fans.

Barnsley are embroiled in a relegation scrap at the foot of the Championship table. A turbulent season at Oakwell has seen a change of ownership and management, with Jose Morais the man in the hotseat to try and guide The Tykes away from danger.

A late goal by Bristol City on Friday meant that Barnsley had to settle for a point in a 2-2 draw, ensuring their winless run stretched to six heading into tomorrow's clash.

See below for the thoughts of Aitor Karanka ahead of the game.

Team news

After making four changes to the side against Millwall, further changes are expected for Forest.

Daryl Murphy and Kieran Dowell will be hoping that a few more days of recovery will enable them to be involved, with both sitting out the trip to The Den through injury.

From the opposition

Barnsley boss Jose Morais feels that Friday's performance in the 2-2 draw against Bristol City has given him confidence in his side to avoid relegation.

The Tykes twice took the lead before being pegged back, but Morais believes if his side puts in similar performances then they will be safe.

He said: "I congratulated the players for their performance and the quality of the performance, as well as the number of situations that they created. This gives me the feeling that we can get what we want and get enough points to stay in the league.

"I thought when we scored the first that this was a game that we deserved to win. With the second goal, I believed that we were in a good position but this is football. We have 90 minutes to play and you don't always get what you deserve.

"I believe in the quality of the players and they are starting to believe that we can achieve. Hopefully in the next game, we will have something better than just one point."

One to watch - Oli McBurnie

The Swansea loanee has been a goalscoring revelation for Barnsley since joining the club in January.

The 21-year-old hit six goals in his first eight games for The Tykes and he will be crucial to helping Barnsley's fight against relegation.
