The EFL Championship continues this week and will see Barnsley host Bristol City at the Oakwell Ground on Tuesday night.

Barnsley held on for a surprise 1-1 draw against league leaders and promotion favorites Fulham in their game at the weekend. Carlton Morris gave the Tykes the lead from the penalty spot in the first half before their opponents leveled the scores late in the game.

The hosts sit 22nd in the Championship standings with 25 points from 36 games. They are just two points above rock-bottom in the table and will be looking to begin picking up points to avoid an impending drop.

Bristol City returned to winning ways this weekend, beating Blackburn Rovers 1-0 in dramatic fashion. The visitors were on the backfoot for most of the game and had the heroics of their goalkeeper to thank for keeping the game goalless before Andreas Weimann scored a brilliant volley to clinch all three points.

Bristol City sit 18th in the league table with 43 points from 37 games. They will now be looking to make it back-to-back wins when they play on Tuesday.
