Barnsley Preview – Can the Tykes seal just a second league win?

Valerien Ismael did a sensational job at Barnsley last season, taking the Tykes to the play-offs. Ismael left for West Bromwich Albion in the summer, with Markus Schopp replacing him. The Austrian will do well to replicate last season’s success at Oakwell.

Barnsley have had a tough start to their season, winning just one of their opening seven games in the Championship. After drawing at Cardiff City and beating Coventry City at home, the club from South Yorkshire have drawn three and lost two of their following five league matches. As a result, Barnsley find themselves down in 17th place.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1020 GMT, Friday 17 September)

Barnsley could do with maximum points in front of their home supporters at the weekend. Schopp’s troops are the bookies’ favourites at 7/4.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can the Blue and Whites extend unbeaten run?

Tony Mowbray is one of the most experienced managers around in the Championship these days, and Blackburn Rovers could be dark horses in the race for promotion to the Premier League this term. Rovers have made a solid start, collecting 12 points from a possible 21.

Blackburn have picked up league wins over Swansea City, Nottingham Forest and Hull City. Overall, they have won three, drawn three and lost one. Since a 2-1 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion, the Blue and Whites are unbeaten in three, winning one and drawing two.
