Recent respective form guides

Barnsley's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Tykes have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Norwich City's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Canaries have hit 10 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Barnsley are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola Championship having mustered a points tally of 38 from their 35 matches played. Norwich City find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 41 points from their 33 matches.
