Recent respective form guides
Barnsley's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. A generous 7 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.
Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the Bluebirds have hit 8 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Barnsley are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 3 points from their 5 games thus far. Cardiff City lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola Championship, picking up 7 from their 5 games so far.
