Barnsley got back to winning ways in the Championship on Wednesday evening, as they ran out narrow 1-0 winners over Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town.
Daryl Dike scored the only goal of the game for Valerien Ismael’s side, as they moved six points clear of seventh-placed Reading in the second-tier standings.
With just three matches remaining in this year’s campaign, it seems likely that Barnsley will finish in the top-six, and they’ll fancy their chances of winning promotion into the Premier League after an impressive run of results in the 2020/21 season.
Dike’s performances have been hugely impressive for the Tykes this season, with the on-loan Orlando City forward having nine goals to his name from his 17 appearances in all competitions.

Plenty of Barnsley supporters took to social media to react to Dike’s recent showing and his comments after the win over the Terriers.
