WATFORD KICK off their Easter double-header with a visit from Mark Robbins Barnsley.
The Tykes have had a much more steady season than last, staying comfortably clear of the relegation zone, currently located in 17th place.
'They're a hardworking side, but they're a young side as well. They've got a mixture of youth and a bit of experience. They've got good qualities throughout. We'll have to be at our best to get anything from the game. Having said that, we've been close to our best on a few occasions in the last few weeks and we've got to keep improving on it.'

Watford seem likely to be without midfielder's Matty Whichelow and Ross Jenkins.
Tom Aldred (head), Michael Bryan (ankle) and Stephen McGinn (knee) are all sidelined.
Connor Smith and Gavin Massey are expected to be on the bench.
Likely Line-up: Loach; Hodson, Mariappa, Taylor, Doyley; Deeney, Eustace (c), Cowie, Buckley; Sordell and Graham.
After a torrid winter period the Northern Irish cap has bounced back to form of late.
Scored the Hornet's equaliser against Leeds United for his first career strike last weekend, Hodson has benefited from his switch back to right back.
Bobby Hassell and Hugo Colace are both back from injury leaving Luke Potter as the only senior player missing for Barnsley.
Line-up Vs. Middlesbrough: Steele; Trippier, McShane, Shackell, Hill; Doyle, Mellis, Butterfield, Haynes; Harewood and Gray.
Bulky forward is on-loan from Premier League struggler's Blackpool where he fell out of favour.
Formerly of Forest, West Ham and Villa, Harewood has four in eight on loan at Oakwell having already nabbed five in seven with the 'Pool.
Watford Home Form: Beat Sheffield United, Lost to Hull City and Drew with Norwich City.
Head2Head Form: Watford 1-0 Barnsley, Barnsley 1-0 Watford (09/10) and Barnsley 0-0 Watford. (10/11)
Barnsley Away Form: Drew @ Cardiff, Lost @ Palace, Drew @ Boro
Referee: Mr D MCDERMID Assistants: Mr P Knight & Mr M Blackledge Fourth Official: Mr M George
Lose - if only on the grounds it's family day at the Vic'!
