Recent respective form guides

Barnsley's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. Tykes have conceded a disappointing 9 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Hull City's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. The The Tigers's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Barnsley are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 32 points from their 33 games thus far. Hull City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 32 points from 32 matches.
