Barnsley are unbeaten in seven home league games against Fulham (W5 D2), although this will be the first clash at Oakwell since February 2001.
Fulham have failed to score on each of their last five visits to Oakwell; the last Fulham players to score there were Jeff Hopkins, Robert Wilson and Gordon Davies in October 1982.
Last time out, Fulham became the first Championship team since Huddersfield (vs Fulham in March 2015) to miss two penalties and then go on to lose the match (lost 1-2 vs QPR).

Barnsley have conceded more goals via set-pieces (including penalties) this season than any other Championship side (8).
The Tykes have scored a league-high six goals via substitutes this term.
Fulham are unbeaten in their last five away matches, winning two and drawing three.

Tottenham Linked With A Double Deal For Fulham Youngsters: Pre-January Deal?



Tottenham have been eyeing the signing of several talented youngsters from the lower leagues. Chief scout David Pleat has been spotted at various lower league matches, and there is every possibility that the club could pull off another Dele Alli. The 20-year-old England sensation is just one of the numerous successes that the club has had when signing players from the lower leagues. The latest to be linked with Spurs are Fulham’s Steven Sessegnon and Ryan Sessegnon. The two brothers have been hailed as great talents in the Fulham squad, and it has not gone unnoticed in the Premier League.

With struggling to get back into the top division, the club may very well be forced to settle their best players as the parachute payment dries out. HITC claims that Spurs are very keen on the two players, who play in defence, as they have already started making their presence in the club’s first team. Ryan Sessegnon is seen as the more talented of the two, and he has already represented England at various youth team levels. Despite being a defender, Ryan has scored two goals in just four games and would be considered as a major set piece threat.

As with every other top English talent, Spurs will not have an easy ride when it comes to signing the two brothers. It was previously reported by Daily Mirror that Tottenham were expected to complete the signing of the 16-year old in January ahead of Liverpool and other Premier League rivals. Spurs, though, have the advantage of being able to offer regular first-team football even if they are young. The impressive track record of the North London outfit is even better than their neighbours and archrivals Arsenal, who have started going after expensive names of late.

One of the strongest hints that they will leave Craven Cottage is the plethora of names who have gone down a similar route in the past. Fulham have had some talented players like Mousa Dembele, Emerson Hyndman, and Patrick Roberts fail to stay at the club, as they saw an opportunity of going elsewhere. There is a very good possibility that the Sessegnon brothers could also follow the same route. Spurs are reportedly considering the possibility of tempting Fulham with a good transfer fee coupled with the possibility to have both players at the club until the end of the campaign.

Ryan plays at left back and scouts feel that he could become the next Gareth Bale with his ability to join the attack more profound than his defensive abilities. Even though he is still not 18, Ryan Sessegnon has already contributed one assist and two goals from left back. He has also become the youngest scorer in the Championship following the goal against Leeds.

WATCH: Tom Cairney meets Fulham superfan who sent heartwarming letter to him

The young fan who sent Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney a letter and his pocket money had a very special visitor on Thursday.

Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney paid a surprise visit to the young supporter who sent some of his pocket money to him as a thank you for his recent performances.

Cairney, who has scored three goals in 12 appearances this season for the Sky Bet Championship club, received the letter and £3 from a Fulham "season ticket holder" on Wednesday.

The young fan, eight-year-old Giacomo Marshall, also had a few hot tips for his hero, asking him to "try to do a bicycle kick" and "run fast to get the ball".

Cairney, who posted an image of the letter and money on his official Twitter page, took time out his busy schedule on Thursday to pay a visit to his biggest fan and came bearing gifts, including a signed shirt and a pair of his football boots.

Tottenham chase Championship duo but face competition from Man Utd and Liverpool - reports



TOTTENHAM are hoping to seal a deal for Fulham's teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon, according to reports.

HITC claim Spurs believe they can sort out a quick deal before January to ward off interest from Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.

And it isn't only one Sessegnon they are interested in bringing to White Hart Lane as they are reportedly are also chasing Ryan's twin brother Steven, who is also at Fulham.

Both Sessegnon brothers are rated very highly, and Ryan has already made his debut for the Whites.

The left-back, 16, has made eight appearances and scored two goals, including a late equaliser against Burton.

His impressive form has seen him regularly beat the more experienced Scott Malone into a starting position at Craven Cottage.

Both are already England youth internationals and HITC say Fulham will try their best to keep them.
             
Despite that Spurs reportedly believe they could seal a deal as soon as January for the pair.

But they are reportedly willing to let the duo stay at Fulham until the end of the season if that would clinch their signatures.

This is why we love the game: A young fan’s heartwarming story
The story of a young fans heartfelt letter to his hero 'Tom Cairny' that swept the nation.



Growing up we all had our footballing heroes, whether you grew up in the decade of legends like Pele and Maradona or all the way to local club cult heroes.

At the tender age of 11 years old, I went to my first game at Craven Cottage to watch the FA Cup against Leyton Orient in 2006.

Fulham lost the game 2-1 but from that moment I fell in love with the passionate atmosphere that surrounded me, the goosebumps leading up to the game, the fans chanting choruses from the terraces and the whiff of the half time hotdogs, everything that football is all about.

In what was a shock defeat for Fulham, Collins John's consolation goal was the moment that I, as a young fan discovered my heroes didn’t wear capes but played in the white of Fulham Football Club.



Although he did not feature in my first ever game, Brian McBride soon became my idol growing up.

Fulham's Captain America became renowned as Mr Reliable during his 4 year stint at the club and as a young fan of the club, I tried emulate my hero every time I played.



On Wednesday 12th October, the heartwarming story of a young fan and his love for his favourite player Tom Cairney went viral across social media and Sky Sports News.



The youngest members to join the ranks of the Fulham faithful have donned their new heroes from Fulham's latest crop of stars.

This young fan sent his hero a letter acknowledging a few of his favourite skills and even a few aspects where the Scotsman can improve.

The young man named Giacomo also included a donation of £3 to thank the Fulham vice captain for all his efforts.

However for some young fans their dreams do come true, when earlier today Tom Cairney visited the young fan to show his appreciation and gratitude for his support.

The outcome of the £3 has been left undisclosed.

Barnsley v Fulham - The Match Officials



What's being said in the forum now? Click to join the Vital Fulham forum!
As Fulham head north, to South Yorkshire, to play Barnsley in a Championship fixture this Saturday afternoon, the travelling support will be hoping that their side can put an end to a run of six fixtures whereby Fulham have not been able to celebrate a victory.

Six games without a win is, I`m afraid to say, relegation form despite our bright start to the season.

However, at this stage of the season there is plenty of time to turn things around and the travelling support will be hoping that Slavisa Jokanovic can engineer a victory.

As the match looms large on the horizon we now have the names of those officials charged with keeping the game civilized and flowing.

The four men chosen are:

Referee - Keith Stroud
Assistant Referee - James Mainwaring
Assistant Referee - Nick Greenhalgh
Fourth Official - Andy Woolmer
