Recent respective form guides

Barnsley need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Tykes have scored 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. The Bluebirds's have scored 12 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 14.

Barnsley are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 16 points from 17 matches.

Cardiff City are holding the final promotion place in the npower Championship, and have accumulated 34 points from the 17 games they have played so far.
