Barnsley Prediction – Can Barnsley turn season around?

It’s been a tough start to Barnsley’s return to the Championship following the euphoria of gaining promotion from League One at the end of last season, and former manager, Daniel Stendel, has already been shown the door at Oakwell after The Tykes have made a poor start to this campaign, leaving them bottom of the Championship.

Caretaker-manager, Alex Murray, has taken over the reigns at the south Yorkshire club and he has a job on his hands to firstly, make Barnsley a competitive outfit again, and secondly, steer The Tykes to safety in the second tier.

With just 1 win all season to date along with having failed to win any of their last 13 matches overall, this may well be easier said than done as they prepare for this difficult Friday night encounter against play-off hopefuls, Bristol City, in front of the TV cameras.

Barnsley’s one success to date this season was achieved on the opening day of the season when they recorded a 1-0 home win against Fulham, but they’ve since slumped to 8 defeats within their last 13 matches and they face a tough task on Friday night too.

Bristol City Prediction – Can Bristol City consolidate play-off position?

Just 1 defeat out of their last 13 matches overall in the Championship has seen Bristol City emerge as one of the contenders for a play-off place again this season under manager, Lee Johnson, as his side currently occupy 6th place in the second tier ahead of this Friday night clash in south Yorkshire.

Bristol City have lost just 2 league matches this season to date with losses incurred against Leeds United and Luton Town, but The Robins are steadily building momentum under Johnson and will no doubt be desperate to sustain their challenge for the play-offs this time around after narrowly missing out at the end of last season.

Bristol City possess an away record of 3-3-1 12/11 so far this season which includes wins at Derby County, Hull City and Stoke City, while also picking up points on the road at Birmingham City, Preston North End and Brentford – all of which are difficult places to get a result.

Having suffered defeat last time out at Luton Town though on their travels, Bristol City will be keen to set the record straight against Barnsley, whom they have an unbeaten stretch of 7 matches against.


Key-Facts – Barnsley vs Bristol City

  • Barnsley have won just 1 of their first 14 matches in the Championship
  • Barnsley are without a win from their last 13 matches in the second tier
  • Bristol City are unbeaten in their last 7 meetings against Barnsley


Betting Tips Verdict

Barnsley’s form so far this season has been wretched and this should ensure that Bristol City get something from their trip to the west country on Friday night.
