Recent respective form guides

Nottingham Forest need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. Forest have conceded a disappointing 7 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Barnsley's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Tykes have hit 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Nottm. Forest find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 19 games have yielded only 13 points. Barnsley find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 24 points from their 19 matches.
