BARNSLEY will look to win a sixth successive away match for the first time in their history at Luton Town on Easter Monday from 3pm.

The Reds are fifth in the table, three points clear of the sides below the play-off places, with seven games remaining.

Barnsley have won at Brentford, Bristol City, QPR, Bournemouth and Wycombe Wanderers which is their first ever five-game winning run in away fixtures at second tier level and joint with the club record set in Division Three North in 1939 then again in 1955.

Luton are 13th, 13 points off the top six and 15 clear of the bottom three.

Head coach Valerien Ismael said: “It is another fight. We have to prepare and recover but the mentality from the guys is right. We prepared well in the break and we are ready. Seven games are left and it so goes quickly so in every game you have to be clinical and not make mistakes.

“The mentality of the guys is very good. We are focused. We have to show the desire to stay where we are.”

Luton won 1-0 at Oakwell on the opening day of the league season thanks to a James Collins strike.

Barnsley will look to extend an eight-game unbeaten run at Kenilworth Road. The Reds used to have a terrible record at Luton, winning one of their first 21 games there with 15 defeats – including the first eight visits – until 1994 when they began a six-game winning run that lasted until 2007.

The only visits since then have been a 0-0 draw in the first game of 2019 and a 1-1 last season, with Aapo Halme netting a late leveller.
