The visit to MKM Stadium in Hull on Boxing Day was postponed a few hours before the start due to positive players on Covid 19 in the home team. Earlier they score a convincing 4:0 win against Birmingham, extending the unbeaten streak (6-1-0, with 5 consecutive wins without conceding a goal), which brought them only three points away from 2nd placed Fulham. They lost just one of their last 10 matches (8-1-1) and now their ambitions have grown. Barnsley extended the negative streak (0-3-4) and will need a good dose of luck to grab something from this match. Also, in the previous days, they had 3 cases of coronavirus in their ranks, while due to injuries out are Woodrow (22/4), Halme (5/0), and Oulare (2/0). It seems difficult for Barnsley to take something on Ewood Park against the most inform team in the Championship.
