Opposition Focus | Season so far
2020/21 was a memorable season for Barnsley supporters, with the Club shocking the Sky Bet Championship with their impressive run to the Play-Off spots. However, the current campaign has been one of note for different reasons.
Valérien Ismaël's move to West Bromwich Albion over the summer made a big impact on the Club, with their former boss taking playmaker Alex Mowatt with him to the Hawthorns.
Markus Schopp was given the task of replacing Ismaël, and while the Tykes opened the season with a draw at CCS, followed by a victory against Coventry City, their form dropped. Schopp was dismissed in November following two league wins, with current boss Poya Asbaghi taking over.
Asbaghi has one competitive victory for Barnsley as boss, a 5-4 after extra time victory over Barrow in the Emirates FA Cup last month, that set up Saturday's fourth round match with Huddersfield Town.
The Tykes sit 24th in the Sky Bet Championship table after 27 matches, on 14 points.
Opposition Focus: Ones to watch
Barnsley have two new faces around their squad following this week's transfer deadline day.
Midfielders Domingos Quina and Amine Bassi have joined up with the Tykes on loan for the rest of the season from Watford and Metz, respectively.
Cauley Woodrow is Barnsley's top scorer this season with four goals, but he is out currently, having had knee surgery during the middle of last month.
Goalkeeper Bradley Collins and defender Michal Helik are ever present this season, with 27 starts apiece.
