Barnsley Preview – Will the Tykes make it three wins in four?

After months of trying, Poya Asbaghi is finally getting a tune out of his Barnsley players. The Tykes head into this one having won two of their last three in the Championship. However, the Reds remain rooted to the foot of the Championship table with a mere 20 points to their name.

Barnsley recently stunned Queens Park Rangers with a 1-0 win at Oakwell earlier in the month. Asbaghi then guided the Tykes to only their fourth league win of the campaign in midweek, beating Hull City 2-0 at the MKM Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Barnsley have huffed and puffed to no real avail all season, but there have certainly been positive signs over the past couple of weeks or so. Can they cause another upset on Saturday?

Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro cruise to three points at Oakwell?

Middlesbrough have been very easy on the eye since Chris Wilder arrived at the Riverside Stadium in November. The former Sheffield United boss has taken Boro from mid-table to the play-off places.

Since the change of management, Middlesbrough have shot up the table with nine wins from their last 13 Championship matches. Last Tuesday, Boro came from behind to beat Steve Bruce’s West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at the Riverside.

Middlesbrough were beaten at Bristol City in their last away game, so Wilder will want to see his team get back to winning ways on their travels at the weekend. The play-off chasers are the favourites, with the bookies offering just 10/11 for an away win.
