BARNSLEY will look to get back-to-back wins for the first time under Neill Collins when they visit the only team in the EFL who are yet to score this season.

The Reds play at League One bottom club Cheltenham Town from 3pm.

After their 2-0 win at Wigan Athletic on Saturday, Barnsley are 12th in the early table with seven points from their first five games.

They have taken four points from their two away games so far this season – drawing at Bristol Rovers then winning at Wigan.

Cheltenham lost their first four games in all competitions then drew 0-0 at Portsmouth last week.

They then conceded late on in a 1-0 loss at home against newly-promoted Northampton Town on Saturday.

They are last in the table with one point.

The only other side in the top seven divisions who are yet to score a league goal this season are Premier League Everton, although they did net twice in the EFL Cup in midweek at Doncaster Rovers.

Head coach Collins told the Chronicle: “They have quite a similar structure to us.

“When a team has maybe not had the best run of results, you are always wary they might change.

“They can be pleased enough with their performance last weekend and they were unfortunate to lose.

“We expect a team that is very well- organised, hard to beat, counter-attacking and the wing-backs can hurt you.”

Collins added: “We go to win every game no matter who we play.

“Saturday is no different.

“I know for a fact, as an ex-professional footballer, it is very difficult to play against a team on a run like that – they will be resilient and up for it.

“Every game in League One is very difficult.

“We need to match everything Cheltenham bring and hopefully show some quality

“We have to go with the same attitude as we did at Wigan.”

Cheltenham were promoted to the third tier in 2021 under Michael Duff who took them to their highest ever finish of 15th last year before spending a season at Barnsley.

Duff’s assistant Wade Elliott took over at Cheltenham and led them to 16th last season.

They started among the favourites to be relegated this time, having one of the smallest budgets and after selling Alfie May – who scored more than 20 goals in each of the last two seasons – to Charlton Athletic.

They have left-back Ben Williams who spent seven years at Barnsley and made 41 appearances before moving to Cheltenham in January last year.

He has played in all their league games so far this season but only started two of them.

This is the fifth meeting of the clubs.

They drew 1-1 at Oakwell in 2002 then the Reds won 3-1 at Whaddon Road in 2003, with now Barnsley coach Martin Devaney playing for Cheltenham in both games.

Last season, the Reds won their first home game against the Robins in August 1-0 thanks to a Luke Thomas strike then triumphed 4-0 away in February with goals by James Norwood, Adam Phillips, Herbie Kane and Jordan Williams.

After the trip to Gloucestershire, the Reds will not play a league game for a fortnight until they host Burton Albion on September 16.
