Barnsley must defeat Nottingham Forest at Oakwell on Sunday to keep their hopes of avoiding relegation from the Championship alive. Five points from safety with two games remaining, it is crunch time for the hosts, while Forest can mathematically wrap up a place in the play-offs with a point.

Barnsley Form

Barnsley's hopes of avoiding relegation suffered a blow when they were beaten 1-0 by champions Leeds on Thursday night, and they find themselves five points adrift of safety with just six points remaining to play for. 

Gerhard Struber's side had looked set for a revival after the season got underway again, but collecting just two points from the last four games looks to have sealed a quick return to League One for the Tykes.

Barnsley Team News

Barnsley will be without winger Elliot Simeos, who joins Romal Palmer on the sidelines.

Nottingham Forest Form

A 2-2 midweek draw against Swansea City all but assured Forest's place in the play-offs, although mathematically a point from the trip to Barnsley will confirm it.

But the stalemate made it four games without a win for Forest, three of which have ended in draws. 

Nottingham Forest Team News

Matty Cash is an injury doubt for Forest, who otherwise have a full squad to choose from.
