Barnsley will be targeting a seventh successive away win and hoping to end a 98-year wait for a victory in an away game against Coventry City on Sunday from 3pm.
The Reds - who are sixth in the table and five points clear of seventh-placed Reading - have had eight days off since beating Middlesbrough 2-0 on Saturday.
Coventry could have gone into the relegation zone last night but won 1-0 at Rotherham United to move up to 18th and six points clear of the bottom three.
They have not won back to back games this season but are unbeaten in three at St Andrew’s, Birmingham City’s ground where they are playing their home games.
Barnsley have won an away game against Coventry in 98 years since 1923, losing 18 of their 25 visits. The Sky Blues are managed by former Reds boss Mark Robins.
Valerien Ismael said: "I saw their game against Rotherham live in the stadium. It was big pressure on both teams and about finding a way to get the points with no risk football. Coventry deserved to win. We know it will be a tough game again. It will be a big fight against a team with a good mentality but we are ready.
"I have seen them play a few times. They have a clear philosophy and they make all the times an interesting game. They have very good players in the squad. Every game in the Championship is a new challenge. "
