Both Barnsley and our West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town have started the Championship season well.

Huddersfield have seven points from their opening three fixtures while Barnsley are sitting nicely behind them with six.

The reds will travel to West Yorkshire looking to make it three wins on the bounce in the Championship.

The hosts will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the campaign and with both teams playing well so far this season it will no doubt be a nil – nil draw.

To date Huddersfield have impressive victories against Brentford and Newcastle and a respectable draw at Villa Park.

The last meeting between the two sides saw the reds thrashed 5 – 0 at the John Smith`s stadium in the season that saw them relegated from the Championship.

In total the reds have only two victories from the previous eight meetings between the sides.

Head coach Paul Heckingbottom is likely to name an unchanged side for the third game in a row. Stefan Payne could come in for Bradshaw but it is likely that Hecky will stick with the same team.

Last season`s top scorer Nahki Wells will be pushing for a start after having to settle for a place on the bench against Aston Villa.

Philip Billing and Harry Bunn are struggling with ankle and hamstring injuries respectfully. While former red Martin Cranie will more than likely have to settle for a place on the bench.

Reds fans lets have your score predictions for this one please. In keeping with the new vital tradition I am predicting a 2 – 1 win to Huddersfield.

COYR.
