Saturday’s match at Oakwell sees Nottingham Forest, who only two weeks ago looked likely for a return to League One, face a Barnsley side with four defeats in their last five games.
The Tykes, who have been in and around mid-table for the majority of the campaign, suffered a disappointing defeat to lowly Coventry last time out.
However, with 42 points, it is safe to assume that they are free from any fears of relegation.
The same cannot be said for their opponents. Forest remain just three points clear of safety, though their shock 2-1 victory at promotion hopefuls Birmingham City last time out will surely boost the team ahead of a run of four games in ten days.
The sides could not be separated when they met at the City Ground on the opening day of the season and another draw looks the best option here at 2/1.

This is reflected by the fact that there is practically nothing between the sides in the 3Way football betting market, with the Tykes priced at 7/4 and Forest available at 8/5.
With confidence high and Dexter Blackstock in goalscoring form after a long absence, Forest could well take the lead in the game at odds of 21/20.
However, Barnsley have only failed to score at home once in the league all season and that was against leaders Southampton back in August.
With this in mind, you might be tempted to back both teams to score in the match at 18/25, or the 1-1 scoreline at 9/2.
Recommended bet: Barnsley and Nottingham Forest to draw @ 2/1
Outside punt: Barnsley and Nottingham Forest to draw 1-1 @ 9/2
