Barnsley Prediction – Can Barnsley end barren spell?

Sunday lunchtime’s hosts, Barnsley, face a tough task of ending a barren 5-match sequence without a win in the Championship when they prepare for the visit of Yorkshire rivals, Leeds United, to their Oakwell ground.

The Tykes started their new Championship campaign brightly enough with a 1-0 home win over pre-season promotion favourites, Fulham, but the Yorkshire side have since struggled to back that emphatic result up as the hosts have now endured a 5-match spell without a further league victory.

Three defeats and two draws within this disappointing period has resulted in losses to Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham City and fellow newly promoted, Luton Town, while Barnsley have picked up points in draws with Charlton Athletic and Wigan Athletic.

Perhaps the most worrying aspect though for Barnsley is their poor recent record against today’s visitors, Leeds United, as The Tykes have lost 4 of their last 5 meetings against their Yorkshire rivals, so this could be a long afternoon for Daniel Stendel’s side.

Leeds United Prediction – Can Leeds United bounce back?

4th placed Leeds United make the short trip to Oakwell for this Sunday lunchtime showdown with Barnsley knowing that all three points here would see them move level on points with Swansea City at the top of the Championship.

It was Swansea City that handed Leeds United their first defeat of this new Championship season just before the international break, when The Swans recorded a narrow 1-0 win away from home at Elland Road to move top of the early standings in the second tier.

Leeds will therefore be desperate to return to winning ways on Sunday and having won 4 of the last 5 meetings against Barnsley, the visitors will be in confident mood as they look to build upon previous wins this season over Bristol City, Wigan Athletic, Brentford and Stoke City.

Another factor in Leeds’ favour prior to this afternoon’s clash is that they’ve won their last 4 away matches on the trot, scoring a total of 9 goals and conceding just 1 in reply in an impressive sequence of results on their travels.


Key-Facts – Barnsley v Leeds United

  • Huddersfield Town have lost 5 of their first 6 matches in the Championship
  • Leeds United have won their last 4 away matches on the trot in the Championship
  • Huddersfield have failed to beat Sheffield Weds at home in the last 7 meetings


Betting Tips Verdict

Barnsley seem to be stuck in a rut while Leeds have additional incentive to do well in this local derby.
