Preview: Burnley vs. Barnsley

Sports Mole previews the match between Burnley and Barnsley in the Championship.

Burnley will be hoping to secure their first victory in seven matches on Saturday when Barnsley visit Turf Moor.

The Clarets have fallen out of the automatic promotion spots after four draws in five Championship fixtures, and manager Sean Dyche will be aware that he needs three points to keep in touch with Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers.

After David Flitcroft was sacked as the club's manager at the weekend, Barnsley responded by recording an impressive 2-1 success away at Brighton & Hove Albion.

With a new manager unlikely to be appointed before Saturday, Micky Mellon and Paul Heckingbottom will remain in charge of the Tykes, and the duo are not expected to make any changes to their starting lineup.
