Barnsley lost 1-0 to Reading on Saturday afternoon thanks to a goal from John Swift in the second half, leaving them in the relegation zone and one point from safety.
Markus Schopp’s side have won only one of their opening twelve fixtures in the Championship – a narrow victory over Coventry City over two months ago.
The Tykes will be hoping they can dramatically improve on their recent performances as they face tough tests against Middlesbrough and Sheffield United, before travelling to Bristol City at the end of the month.
