BARNSLEY end their npower Championship campaign with a home clash with Millwall today looking to celebrate an elusive victory.

The Reds can move up one place to 17th in the table with a win and manager Mark Robins will be looking for his side to finish a rather disappointing season with a win.

The Tykes have won only two of their last 16 games with a 2-2 draw at rivals Sheffield United last Saturday the most recent fixture in which they have failed to pick up maximum points.

The result consigned the Blades to relegation from the division but the Reds needed a double strike from Danny Haynes to earn a point.

With only one game of the season remaining, Leeds United are still chasing a place in the Championship play-offs but it is going to take a minor miracle for the Whites to break into the top six.

Simon Grayson’s men travel to champions QPR today knowing that a victory over the Londoners, a Nottingham Forest defeat to Crystal Palace and a six-goal swing in United’s favour is the minimum requirement for a play-off berth.

Huddersfield Town will need to achieve promotion the hard way if they are to play in the Championship next season.

The Terriers maintained their brilliant run of form with a gutsy 3-2 win at League One champions Brighton last Saturday but Southampton’s victory over Plymouth Argyle in midweek steered the Saints to an automatic promotion spot.

Lee Clark’s men host Brentford today already assured of a place in the play-offs alongside Peterborough, MK Dons and Bournemouth.
