Despite being new to the Championship this season, Southampton are strongly fancied to be well towards the top of the table come the end of the season and visit Oakwell today for the first home league game for the Reds.
Keith Hill is yet to see his new team score a goal in competitive action following the 0-0 draw at Forest and the disappointing cup exit to Morecambe on Tuesday night.
Barnsley: Preece, Wiseman, McEveley, Edwards, McNulty, Addison, Doyle, Perkins, Butterfield, Davies, Haynes

Southampton: Davis, Richardson, Harding, Fonte, Lambert, Cork, Do Prado, Hammond, Lallana, Connolly, Seaborne.
Subs: Bialkowski, Schneiderlin, Martin, Chaplow, De Ridder.

The Reds have settled in mid-table with nothing really to play for, however this seems to have sparked something of a revival in performances which should lead to an interesting encounter as Barnsley play with freedom and little pressure against a team which will have manager Malky Mackay putting pressure on them to finish as close to the play-off positions as possible.
