Leeds United travel to Oakwell to take on Barnsley FC in the early Championship fixture on Saturday afternoon.
Leeds and Barnsley have almost opposite form in their last five games, as Leeds have won only once in their last five matches and Barnsley have lost only once in their last five matches. While Leeds got off to a rather fast start and have struggled since, Barnsley started slow, but have climbed the table in recent weeks, and currently sit only three points behind Leeds, while Leeds sit three points off the playoff places after leading the league after seven matches.
