Mangerless Barnsley have a golden opportunity to lift themselves off the foot of the Championship table on Friday night as they go head-to-head with sixth-placed Bristol City.

Interim manager Adam Murray took over the reigns on an interim basis earlier this month and has lost just one of the three games he has taken charge of, earning a priceless draw at table-toppers West Bromwich Albion last Tuesday. 

The Oakwell club are currently propping up the Championship table, level on points with Stoke City who face league leaders West Brom on Monday night. 

By contrast Barnsley’s opponents Bristol City have enjoyed a promising start to the season, winning six and drawing six more in their first fourteen fixtures.
