Barnsley are set to play host to Sheffield Wednesday at Oakwell on Saturday for their latest EFL Championship fixture.

Barnsley come into this game on the back of a 3-1 win over Gareth Ainsworth's Wycombe Wanderers yesterday at Adams Park. A second-half brace from young United States of America international Daryl Dike and a goal from striker Cauley Woodrow ensured victory for Valerien Ismael's Barnsley, who had midfielder Alex Mowatt sent off in the second-half. Attacker Uche Ikpeazu scored the goal for Wycombe Wanderers.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, drew 1-1 against Carlos Corberan's Huddersfield Town yesterday at the Hillsborough Stadium. A first-half goal from forward Josh Windass for Sheffield Wednesday was cancelled out by a second-half own goal from Scotland international Callum Paterson for Huddersfield Town.

Barnsley vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Barnsley are currently 5th in the EFL Championship table, and have impressed with their performances. Attacker Daryl Dike, who arrived on loan from Orlando City in January, has been in fine form, with players like Callum Styles and Mads Andersen also performing well.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, are 23rd in the league table, nine points behind 21st-placed Birmingham City who have played a game more. Darren Moore has a tough job in his hands, with the Owls having lost four of their last five league games.

Barnsley are in good form and will be the favourites to win here.
