Cardiff v Barnsley preview
Last Updated: 05/03/18 8:18pm
Cardiff City take on Barnsley looking for a win that would close the gap on Championship leaders Wolves to just three points.
Both sides had their weekend fixtures called off, and Cardiff's trip to Brentford and Barnsley's home date with Norwich City have been rescheduled for Tuesday 13 March.
Cardiff will hope Callum Paterson can return from injury, but skipper Sean Morrison remains a doubt.
Barnsley defender Ethan Pinnock may be back for the first time since January following a broken bone in his foot, but Adam Jackson will not return until the weekend after being knocked unconscious during last Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Hull.
Cardiff have lost one of their last nine league matches against Barnsley (W5 D3), though that defeat was at the Cardiff City Stadium last season.
The last three Championship matches between these sides at the Cardiff City Stadium have produced 17 goals (nine for Cardiff, eight for Barnsley).
Cardiff have won their last four league games without conceding - they have never won five in a row without conceding in their entire history.
Jose Morais has won four points in his first two away Championship games with Barnsley (W1 D1), as many as previous boss Paul Heckingbottom won his last seven away league matches (W1 D1 L5).
Kenneth Zohore has never scored in three consecutive Championship appearances for Cardiff.
Oliver McBurnie has scored three goals in two away Championship starts for the Tykes.
With Barnsley suffering from their manager leaving in what's been quite an up-and-down season, they'll be another side who are looking to finish just outside the bottom three by a couple of points.
For them it'll be consolidation, but I think for second-place Cardiff there's a huge carrot being dangled in front of them, with the gap between themselves and Wolves having shrunk to six points. What Neil Warnock is doing is wonderful and we love what he does because he doesn't change for anyone.
Prutton predicts: 2-0 (11/2 with Sky Bet)
