Blackpool go into the game in much better form, as they have begun to find their feet following a difficult start to life back in the second tier.
After winning the League One playoffs last season, the Seasiders failed to win any of their first five league games of the new campaign but have since triumphed in two of the last three.
Having defeated promotion favourites Fulham a fortnight ago, Neil Critchley’s side came from behind to beat Middlesbrough 2-1 last weekend thanks to Marvin Ekpiteta’s strike and an own goal from Grant Hall.
The result moved Blackpool out of the relegation zone, with Critchley commenting that it proved his team “can be competitive in this division”.
Now the Seasiders are looking for back-to-back victories for the first time this season, but they have scored just once in four home league games so far in 2021-22 and have only won one of their last nine league meetings with Barnsley.
Following defeat in the playoffs last season, the Tykes have struggled to find their feet in the new campaign under Markus Schopp.
The Austrian replaced West Bromwich Albion-bound Valerien Ismael in the summer but has overseen just one victory from the first eight league games and the South Yorkshire outfit are currently winless in six matches.

With a clash against 23rd-place Nottingham Forest to come on Wednesday, Schopp will be hopeful of turning a corner before the next international break
