There are big things at stake at both ends of the table when Brentford host Barnsley in their final games of the EFL Championship season. Brentford could still seal automatic promotion, while a win could see Barnsley avoid relegation. Will either be celebrating on Wednesday night?

Brentford Form

Brentford missed out on the chance to move into the automatic promotion spots when losing 1-0 to Stoke City on Saturday, and their fate is now out of their own hands. The Bees trail West Brom by a point heading into the final game.

Thomas Frank's side had surged into the title race on the back of a club record eight straight wins in a row, but will they bounce back from the weekend disappointment and make a bid for second spot and a first-ever place in the Premier League?

Brentford must better the result of West Brom, who host QPR, to leapfrog them and secure automatic promotion.

Brentford Team News

Nikos Karelis remains sidelined for Brentford, who otherwise have a full squad to choose from.

Barnsley Form

Barnsley kept their hopes of avoiding relegation alive with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday thanks to Patrick Schmidt's dramatic winner two minutes into injury time.

Gerhard Struber's side had collected just two points from the previous four games and looked like making a quick return to League One, but they now sit two points adrift of safety and the formula is a simple one.

Barnsley must beat Brentford at Griffin Park and hope Charlton lose away to champions Leeds and Luton don't pick up more than a point at home to Blackburn. If that scenario plays out, Barnsley will survive.

Barnsley Team News

Barnsley will be without Elliot Simeos and Romal Palmer with both still on the sidelines.
