Barnsley Preview – Can the Tykes beat the Championship leaders?

Since taking over in October, Valerien Ismael has certainly had a positive impact at Oakwell. However, after another defeat in midweek, the Tykes could do with getting back to winning ways as soon as possible. Since a 2-1 win at Rotherham United in late December, Barnsley have kicked off 2021 with three straight league losses.

However, the Yorkshire club did pick up a win in the third round of the FA Cup earlier in the month. Goals from Michal Helik and Cauley Woodrow gave Barnsley a 2-0 home win over EFL League Two outfit Tranmere Rovers.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1307 GMT, Friday 22 January)

Barnsley have improved drastically under Ismael, with the Tykes in the top half and still in with a realistic shout of reaching the play-offs. Can they get the better of Championship opposition in the FA Cup on Saturday?

Norwich City Preview – Canaries to edge past the Tykes at Oakwell?

Daniel Farke’s Norwich City have had a stunning season in the Championship so far. The Canaries lead the way at the top of the division at the halfway point and look destined to make an instant return to the Premier League.

In the previous round of the FA Cup, Daniel Farke’s men eased to a 2-0 home win over Mark Robins’ Coventry City. Two goals in the opening seven minutes from Kenny McLean and Jordan Hugill was enough to give City a 2-0 win over the Sky Blues at Carrow Road.

Norwich are flying high in the Championship, and Farke’s boys should squeeze past Barnsley in the fourth round of the FA Cup at the weekend. One goal was enough to give Norwich a 1-0 win when the two met in the league a few weeks ago, and there is good value in the 1-0 Norwich win here at 13/2.
