Barnsley are set to host Brentford at Oakwell on Tuesday in an EFL Championship fixture.

Barnsley come into this game following a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday at Oakwell.

Goals from young midfielder Callum Styles and striker Cauley Woodrow late in the second half were enough to ensure the victory for Valerien Ismael's men, with Barnsley scoring from both their shots on target.

Brentford, on the other hand, drew 0-0 against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday at the Adams Park.

Despite fielding a strong side including attacker Bryan Mbeumo, in-form striker Ivan Toney and Sergi Canos, Thomas Frank's Brentford were unable to find the net against a resolute Wycombe Wanderers side.

Barnsley vs Brentford Prediction

Barnsley barely survived in the Championship last season, with their last-gasp win against Brentford ensuring their safety. Manager Gerhard Struber has since departed for New York Red Bulls, with former Wolfsburg manager Valerien Ismael appointed as the new manager. They are in good form coming into this game, having won four of their last five games.

Brentford, on the other hand, are still recovering from the loss of star attackers Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma to the Premier League. Ivan Toney has proven to be a shrewd acquisition, but their current form has left much to be desired.

Barnsley must be confident after their win against Nottingham Forest. Brentford have a good squad, but a draw seems to be on the horizon.
