Barnsley Preview – Tykes to book their place in play-offs?

Valerien Ismael had done a remarkable job at Barnsley since taking over back in October. The Frenchman has taken the Tykes from relegation candidates to the cusp of the Championship play-offs.

After a 2-0 defeat at Coventry City last Sunday, Barnsley bounced back with a vital victory against Huddersfield Town in midweek. It was a close game at the John Smith’s Stadium, but Daryl Dike’s goal in the 65th minute won the points for the Yorkshire side.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1125 GMT, Friday 23 April)

Barnsley have been in stunning form since the turn of the year and fully warrant their lofty league position. If results go their way this weekend, Ismael’s troops will secure a place in the play-offs with two games to spare. They are the big favourites at 8/11 to get the win.

Rotherham United Preview – Fourth straight defeat for the Millers?

It has been a real struggle for Rotherham United from start to finish this season. They are still playing catch up with games in hand, but the Millers are currently four points adrift of safety. Overall, United have won 11, drawn six and lost 24.

This will be Rotherham’s first away fixture in five, with the previous four all taking place at the New York Stadium. They got off to a flyer with a 3-1 win over in-form Queens Park Rangers, but Paul Warne’s boys have lost the last three. Four of their remaining five are now on the road.
