Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Nottingham Forest will be looking to follow up Saturday's 4-3 win at Brentford when they make the trip to Oakwell on Tuesday night to take on Barnsley.

Goals from Daryl Murphy, Kieran Dowell and an Andreas Bouchalakis brace sealed the win at Griffin Park and Mark Warburton's side have the chance to make it three league wins from three at Oakwell.

Paul Heckingbottom's side lost out 2-1 at home to Ipswich on Saturday and will be keen to bounce back against The Reds. 

That result made it two defeats from two for The Tykes who will be keen to get off the mark in front of their own fans.

From the opposition

Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom told their official website: "I'm expecting another tough game. I'm expecting a similar performance from us but with the right result this time.

"If we play like we did on Saturday then I expect us to win the game. Saturday was the first time this season I've stood on the touchline and been happy with lots of things. So I know the progression is there.

"We'd had a really good week in training, the players took everything on board and we saw it out on the pitch, but we just didn't get the result we deserved."
