Barnsley visit Stevenage tomorrow from 7.45pm, hoping to bounce back from Saturday's loss at Charlton Athletic and cement their position in League One's top six.

The Reds are fifth in League One, eight points off the top two and six clear in the top six. They lost 2-1 at Charlton on Saturday, ending a club record 11-game unbeaten away run.

They need six more points from their last five games to guarantee a place in the play-offs.

Stevenage are ninth, six points and three places outside the top six with four games left.

The Hertfordshire club looked set to compete for a second successive promotion before a winless run of eight games all but ended their chances. They have only won two of their last 14 games, not scoring in three. They were beaten 1-0 at Exeter City on Saturday.

They still have the fourth best defensive record in the division, while only Lincoln have let in fewer home goals than Stevenage’s 15 in 20 games.

It will be Barnsley’s first ever match at Stevenage. They and more than 1,000 fans travelled down in January but it was called off at 1.15pm with the referee claiming part of the pitch was unplayable due to frozen ground which Neill Collins disputed.

The two teams had met for the first time ever at Oakwell on December 23. The visitors took a fourth-minute lead through Luther Wildin-James and were on top for half an hour but Barnsley won it through John McAtee’s stunning lob and Herbie Kane’s deflected winner.

Stevenage manager Steve Evans has lost all three meetings with Barnsley, having also been beaten twice as Peterborough boss in 2018/19.

Barnsley head coach Neill Collins said: “We’re always motivated but there will be extra motivation and we do want to reward our fans after what happened last time. There was a lot of disappointment.

“We’re going into a difficult environment against a really good side. They ask you different questions.

“Our players have done a great job of making these long journeys worthwhile for the fans.

“We will look to do the same at Stevenage after what happened the previous time.

“Steve has done a fantastic job. We will have to be at our very best. But following a defeat it’s a game to look forward to.

"They play direct, they have real good attacking players, (Jamie) Reid has scored a lot of goals. We will need to be aware of that but we will look to cause them some problems as well.”

Midfielder Adam Phillips added: “They are a good team. They are a lot more physical than Charlton.

“We will have to go there with a gameplan. It was a tough game at home and we’re expecting another one. We’ve been good away this season and hopefully we can get another away win.

“They are a good team and very organised. They are a bit different to other teams and it works for them.”
