For every week that Barnsley spend in the race for the top six, hope is turning to expectation for the club’s supporters as they begin to dream about an unlikely return to the Premier League.
Valerien Ismael and his squad will relish the opportunity to remain as underdogs in competition with clubs who have budgeted for promotion to the top flight.
Nevertheless, six successive wins, the latest coming against Queens Park Rangers in midweek, has put the Tykes within three points of fifth spot.
Barnsley scored three goals at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, their best return since the end of October.
Carlton Morris and Daryl Dike have now contributed six goals since their January arrivals, keeping them as potential difference-makers come the end of the campaign.
They have now won six games in-a-row following Wednesday’s win at QPR and could find themselves in the play-offs if results go in their favour over the weekend.
Birmingham, meanwhile, are well and truly in a relegation dogfight after a dismal run of three wins from their last 17 games and they will be looking nervously over their shoulder at Rotherham in 22nd who are just three points behind with two games in hand.
It’s hard to see Birmingham getting anything from this game and they could be cast further into the relegation mire by dinner time on Saturday.
