Barnsley will look to continue their unbeaten season away from home when they visit Cambridge United tomorrow from 7.45pm.
The Reds are currently seventh in the table, with 16 points from ten games, following Saturday’s 1-0 loss at home to Blackpool.
They have lost four of their last five home league games.
But, away from home, they are unbeaten with ten points from a possible 12, winning the last three, and the best defensive record in the division for away games.
Cambridge, who narrowly avoided relegation last season, are currently 13th in the table with 14 points.
They have ten points from five home league games so far this season.
They drew 0-0 at Derby County on Saturday.
Reds head coach Neill Collins said: “Their result at the weekend was impressive - to go to Pride Park and get a clean sheet. They drew with Port Vale as well. "The manager (Mark Bonner) has done a fantastic job in his time there. It’s a club with good stability.
“They have key principles they stick to, especially at home. We will be in for a challenge so we have to be ready for it.
“They can play, they can go direct, they have strong strikers and experience at the back.”
Barnsley academy graduate Paul Digby has started every game so far this season for the Us.
Barnsley players Robbie Cundy and Adam Phillips had loans at Cambridge. Cundy is injured and Phillips has been ill.
On Phillips, Collins said: “He’s definitely feeling better and he has the potential to be involved tomorrow. But he has been ill for three or four days. So we have to make sure we don’t put him at risk.”
The two clubs have met 23 times, with Barnsley winning 11 – including the last four – and losing five.
Barnsley did the double against United last season, despite red cards in each game at 1-0 up, to Liam Kitching at the Abbey Stadium in September and to Max Watters after scoring at Oakwell in February.
Devante Cole, Cundy and James Norwood scored in the away game with Jordan Williams netting at Oakwell.
