Barnsley Preview – Can Tykes extend run?

Barnsley are unbeaten in their last three matches in the Championship which will have come as a welcome boost for Wednesday night’s hosts after losing three matches on the trot with losses incurred against Norwich City, Swansea City and Watford respectively.

However, that was a particularly tough set of fixtures and Barnsley have since recovered by picking up points in draws with Cardiff City 2-2 and a 0-0 draw at Nottingham Forest before recording a 2-0 win away at Brentford on the weekend.

Barnsley possess a reasonable record at Oakwell of 6-3-4 16/15 with seven of Barnsley’s 13 home matches resulting in over 2.5 goals and five of their last six seeing 3 goals or more scored.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Rovers stay alive?

After suffering recent back-to-back defeats against QPR and Preston NE respectively, this upcoming clash away at Barnsley now represents a ‘must win’ game for Tony Mowbray’s side if they’re to stand any chance of staying in touch with the play-off pack.

With just four wins out of their last 13 matches, Rovers have slipped further away from the top six in the Championship and the Lancashire club now occupy a disappointing 10th place in the table and their hopes of a possible play-off spot are beginning to fade.

Even a draw is probably not going to make much difference to Blackburn’s current situation as they trail 6th placed Bournemouth by seven points and with an inconsistent looking away record of 5-2-7 21/16 on the road to date, all three points look far from guaranteed; however, seven of Blackburn’s 14 away matches have been over 2.5 goals and this market looks the best bet here.
