Barnsley will be hoping they can bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Birmingham City in midweek, when they return to action on Saturday.
They Tykes were beaten 1-0 by the Blues at Oakwell on Tuesday, which means they’re now without a win in their last six games in all competitions this season.
Barnsley are now sat bottom of the second-tier standings, and are nine points adrift of safety, which will make for concerning for the club’s supporters.
It doesn’t get any easier for Gerhard Struber’s side though, as they prepare to travel to Craven Cottage to take on promotion-chasing Fulham.
Speaking in a pre-match press conference ahead of their game against the Cottagers, midfielder Mike-Steven Bähre admitted that he feels as though his side are good enough to pull themselves out of the relegation zone.
“We’re at the bottom of the league; it doesn’t look good for us at the moment. But we’ve proven so many times that we can win games and we’re good enough to win games.
“I know not many people believe in us to stay in the league, but we know we’re good enough to play in the Championship and we will fight until the last match.”

It’s good to hear that they’ll still confident of retaining their Championship status this season.
Barnsley have struggled for consistency in their results this season, but it’s important that they don’t let their heads drop at such a crucial stage of this year’s league campaign.
If they do that, then they can forget about surviving in the second-tier this term. It’s certainly going to be a tough test to pick up anything against Fulham this weekend, but they’ll be keen to shock the Cottagers.
Their home form is going to be key to any chance they’ll have of staying up in the Championship, but it’s certainly going to be a tough ask for the Tykes to survive this term.
