Millwall are currently 10th in the table, six points off the top six. Gary Rowett's side have been in inconsistent form of late, having won only one of their last six games. They will look to bounce back with a win against Barnsley on Saturday.
Barnsley, on the other hand, have had a disappointing season so far and are currently 22nd in the league, nine points away from safety. Poya Asbaghi's side have also only managed to win one of their last six games. They will hope to turn things around with a win against Millwall on Saturday.
Both sides are looking to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an interesting matchup.
