However, Forest haven't beaten the Tykes at Oakwell since October 2000 and have failed in their last six attempts to do so.
Barnsley will go level on points with the visitors should they secure a home win, although they haven't won on their own soil since September 1.
Forest will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to five games, coming off the back of a 2-2 draw at Blackpool.
