Two relegation-battling sides square off at Oakwell Stadium on Saturday as Barnsley host Hull City in the EFL Championship.

The Colliers won for the first time in 14 games last night, coming from behind to beat Derby County in a massive reprieve for them.

It was only their second victory of the season. They moved above Hull in 22nd position, whose losing streak extended to five games following last night's 1-0 loss to West Brom.

The Tigers too have won only twice all season but remain second from bottom by virtue of more defeats.

They're one of only two sides in the division who're still to hit double-digits in the points columns, having accumulated only nine so far.

Derby County are bottom with five, although the club were slapped with a 12-point deduction for going into administration.

Barnsley vs Hull City Head-To-Head

There have been 105 clashes between the sides in history, with Barnsley winning 42 times and losing on a close 40 occasions.

Their last defeat in the fixture came in October 2017 and the Reds have won each of their last two clashes too.

Barnsley vs Hull City Prediction

The game may not be one-way traffic but Hull are stuck in a rut at the moment, losing each of their last five games and failing to score in their last three.

Barnsley, meanwhile, have their confidence restored after last night's game and will look to channel that here.

Barring an implosion, it should be a comfortable win for the home side.

Prediction: Barnsley 2-0 Hull City
