Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday's Championship game between relegation rivals Barnsley and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Two of the Championship's relegation candidates face each other at Oakwell on Tuesday evening.

Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to Barnsley sitting just one place above them in the table, although Barnsley do have a game in hand.

Barnsley are the form team, winning their last three in the league, and having beaten MK Dons in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Manager David Flitcroft will have a tough decision to make regarding his strikers, all of whom are in form. Marlon Harewood and Chris Dagnall got the goals against MK Dons, while Jason Scotland netted a late winner at Middleborough in their last league outing.

The home side are likely to be without Kelvin Etuhu, who was stretchered off after a clash of heads in the FA Cup game.

Wolves meanwhile are without a win in ten matches. Dean Saunders has only overseen six of those games, and has rued missed chances in their last two outings, both draws.

New signing Kaspars Gorkss is expected to continue in defence but Wolves are still without long-term absentee Razak Boukari.
