Mick McCarthy starts life at Cardiff City with a trip to Oakwell, as Valerien Ismael’s Barnsley welcome the Bluebirds to South Yorkshire this Wednesday for an EFL Championship fixture.

Barnsley Preview – Can the Tykes avoid a fourth straight league loss?

Since taking over at Oakwell, Valerien Ismael has done a fine job with this Barnsley team. After 20 league and cup matches, Ismael has guided the Tykes to 12 wins. They have yet to draw, with the other eight all ending in losses.

Last time out, Barnsley beat Championship leaders Norwich City at Oakwell in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup. However, in league action, the Yorkshire side have lost three on the spin and four of their last six. They will be desperate to get back on track this Wednesday.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1102 GMT, Tuesday 26 January)

Barnsley have an excellent record at Oakwell under Ismael, winning eight of 11. However, their last home league victory was on Boxing Day. The Barnsley win on Wednesday is available at 7/5.

Cardiff City Preview – Will McCarthy start with a win?

After six successive league and cup losses, the Cardiff City board sacked Neil Harris last week. The final nail in the coffin was a 1-0 home loss to Queens Park Rangers last Wednesday. The Bluebirds have not won a game since beating Birmingham City at home in mid-December.

The signing of the experienced Mick McCarthy could be a very shrewd move by the club. The 61-year-old knows the Championship inside out, guiding Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers to the title in 2005 and 2009, respectively. He also had a successful spell with Republic of Ireland recently.

The Cardiff players will be desperate to impress their boss and stop their horrid losing run. Can the Bluebirds pick up their first away win since beating Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on December 8th?


Barnsley vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

Cardiff were far too good for Barnsley when the pair met in the reverse matchup at the Cardiff City Stadium in November. Junior Hoilett and Joe Ralls gave City a 2-0 lead at the break, with Harry Wilson completing the scoring in the 77th minute. That was Ismael’s first defeat as Tykes boss.


Key Facts – Barnsley vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have lost six in a row in all competitions
  • Barnsley have yet to draw under Ismael (12 wins, eight defeats)
  • The Bluebirds have won each of their last five meetings with the Tykes


Cardiff head to Oakwell in terrible form, but we fancy the Bluebirds to get a win in McCarthy’s first game in charge. It could be close on the scoreline, though, so check out the away team to win by one at 3/1. We also like the look of both teams to score at 5/6.

Cardiff have picked up eight Championship victories so far, opening the scoring in seven of those. You can get the tempting odds of 5/4 for City to open the scoring in South Yorkshire on Wednesday night.
