The Tykes were defeated 1-0 by Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon as they were unable to fight back from an early opener by Philip Billing.
Barnsley are without a win since their 2-1 victory over Derby County at the start of November and find themselves glued to the bottom of the table – eight points from safety.
They will now face Cardiff City on Wednesday evening before taking on Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup next weekend.
