Barnsley Preview – Can the Tykes make home advantage count?

After dropping out of the Championship, promotion at the first time of asking will be Barnsley’s ultimate ambition this season. They have started the campaign well, collecting 14 points from their opening nine matches.

Michael Duff’s men have picked up four wins, lost three times and have drawn twice. They are unbeaten in four in the league, winning two and drawing two. Last time out, goals from Devante Cole, Robbie Cundy and James Norwood gave them an easy 3-0 away success at Cambridge United.

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

(odds taken 1142 GMT, Friday 23 September)

Having not won at home in the league in two, Barnsley will be looking for all three points in front of their home supporters this weekend. The South Yorkshire club are the bookies’ favourites in this one.

Charlton Athletic Preview – Will the Addicks return to London with a positive result?

Charlton Athletic are one of a whole host of clubs who have play-off ambitions this season. They have made an indifferent start, though, winning just two of the opening nine. Overall, they have won two, lost two and drawn five to take 11 points from a possible 27.

Charlton are without a league win in five since thumping Plymouth Argyle 5-1 at The Valley back in mid-August. Since then, they have drawn four and lost one of their following five League One fixtures. In the last one, Athletic drew 1-1 at Fleetwood Town.

Barnsley vs Charlton Athletic Betting Advice

These two teams last locked horns in the 2019-20 Championship season. They played out a thrilling 2-2 draw in the game at Oakwell, with a late Lyle Taylor penalty giving the Addicks a share of the spoils. Charlton then edged the meeting at The Valley several months later.

Barnsley’s last success in this fixture was a 2-1 League One victory back in December 2018.


Key Facts – Barnsley vs Charlton Athletic Betting Tip

  • Barnsley have won four of their opening nine
  • The Tykes are undefeated in four
  • Charlton are winless in five league games (four draws, one defeat)


On paper, these two teams look hard to split. This one at Oakwell could go either way and we anticipate a tight tussle. However, the hosts could edge it on home soil. Take a punt on Barnsley to win by one goal.

Devante Cole has netted three League One goals this season, with two of those coming in his last three outings. Back the 27-year-old to net first in this one.
