Barnsley v Brighton

Final game of a long season

Vital Quotes:

Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley winger Matty Done could return from a hamstring injury but Scott Golbourne (groin) and Rob Edwards (dead-leg) are out.

Defender Bobby Hassell could make a last-day cameo appearance, following a knee injury that has kept him out since January.

Player to watch: Button - he'll be busy

Brighton Team News:

Brighton captain Gordon Greer is still suffering from an abdominal injury, so Lewis Dunk will continue to deputise.

Midfielder Ryan Harley (tendonitis) is also out of contention.

Player to watch: Mackail-Smith

Match Facts & Stats

Head-to-head

Nothing can separate these clubs, after 31 league meetings. Both have won 12, with seven drawn.

Brighton have had the better of the exchanges more recently, and are chasing a sixth win in seven league meetings, and a third on the trot.

Barnsley's only points against the Seagulls in 22 years came from a 1-0 home win at third league level in August 2003.

Barnsley

Barnsley will be spending a seventh successive season in the Championship

Victory could see them rise three places, but Keith Hill's side have lost their last three league games and are without victory in six.

Defeat would see the Tykes ending the season on their lowest points total since the fateful Premier League campaign of 1997-98, when only 35 were accrued.

Match Prediction:

Can't see anything other than Barnsley finishing the season with a wimper.
