In the weeks after the turn of the year, Barnsley’s promising form under Valerien Ismael started to unravel, creating the prospect of the remainder of the campaign being spent in mid-table.
Three successive victories for the loss of just one goal have changed the club’s trajectory, however, and they will now feel that they can challenge for the playoffs.
Thomas Frank would have been aware of the challenges which came with possessing such a long unbeaten run, including the ramifications of one defeat halting their progress.
However, the Brentford boss would not have envisaged three defeats in a row, particularly against a Coventry City side who had gone five matches without success.
On the back of seeing Brentford lose out at Coventry, Swansea boss Steve Cooper knew that his side had an opportunity to make a significant move in the Championship promotion race.
However, the Welsh side produced one of their worst performances of the season, conceding four goals in just 55 minutes to deservedly lose out at Huddersfield.
Ultimately, though, Rovers are freefalling down the division and are surely out of the playoff picture, finding themselves 10 points adrift of the top six.

Not since April 2012 have Blackburn lost five straight league matches but, given the form of opponents Watford, that is a real possibility on Wednesday.
QPR have been on a remarkable run of form since the turn of the year, winning six of their seven league matches in 2021 by an aggregate 10-4 scoreline.
That has not been enough to propel them into serious playoff contention, however, as they sit 10 points adrift of the top six, albeit with two games in hand to play.
