Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship match between Barnsley and Middlesbrough.

Barnsley will be looking to move off the bottom of the Championship when they welcome Middlesbrough to Oakwell on Saturday.

David Flitcroft's side have failed to win in their last six matches, losing five of them. They were beaten by league leaders Queens Park Rangers last time out.

Middlesbrough have moved away from the relegation zone after beating Yeovil Town 4-1 a fortnight ago.

Barnsley have no new injury worries ahead of the game and Flitcroft could be tempted to make changes to the side that lost at QPR. Tomasz Cywka and Marcus Pedersen may be brought into the starting XI.

Mowbray is expected to name the same side that beat Yeovil, with goalscorers Kei Kamara and Albert Adomah retaining their places in the team.
