Barnsley and Stoke City square off at Oakwell this Tuesday in EFL Championship action. The Tykes have been showing signs of life of late, but they crashed to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Derby County last time out. As for the Potters, they have lost three Championship games on the spin and desperately need to get back on track. Who will come out on top in South Yorkshire in midweek? Read on for the latest odds and top tips.

Barnsley Preview – Will the Tykes make it three home wins on the spin?

Poya Asbaghi’s Barnsley are down in 23rd place with a mere 23 points to their name. The Tykes, who reached the play-offs last term, have had a miserable time in the Championship this season, picking up just five wins from 34 games.

They have shown signs of fight recently, though, winning three of their last five. In recent weeks, the Yorkshire club have beaten the likes of Queens Park Rangers, Hull City and Middlesbrough. Unfortunately, they fell to a 2-0 defeat to relegation rivals Derby last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Stoke to score first

(odds taken 1411 GMT, Monday 7 March)

Barnsley have given themselves a fighting chance after the trio of wins, although they are still six points away from safety. Can they secure a vital victory in front of their home fans this Tuesday?

Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters avoid a fourth straight loss?

Stoke City’s season is in danger of ending with a whimper, as the Potters have picked up just two Championship victories in three months. An alarming dip in form has seen Stoke go from the cusp of the play-offs down to 15th.

Since a 3-0 home success over Swansea City in early February, Stoke have drawn two and lost three of the following five. The pressure is mounting on Michael O’Neill, as last weekend’s poor 1-0 home loss to Blackpool was the club’s fourth league and cup defeat on the bounce.

Stoke have had a rough time of late, but three points on Tuesday will certainly lift the spirits in the Potteries. The bookies are offering 11/8 for an away win.


Barnsley vs Stoke City Betting Advice

Stoke and Barnsley played out a 1-1 draw when the pair met at the bet365 Stadium earlier in the season. Sam Surridge opened the scoring early doors, with Cauley Woodrow levelling for the Tykes before the break. Tommy Smith was sent off late on for City.

When they last locked horns at Oakwell, Barnsley won 2-0 back in February last year thanks to goals from Callum Styles and Daryl Dike.


Key Facts – Barnsley vs Stoke City Betting Tip

  • Barnsley have lost their last two at home
  • Stoke have lost three league fixtures in a row
  • The pair played out a 1-1 draw in Stoke a few months back


Barnsley’s need for the three points is greater, but O’Neill will be demanding a response from his players after their poor performance against Blackpool last time out. We fancy the Potters to secure a narrow win at Oakwell – the away victory is available at 11/8.

Josh Maja has netted two goals for Stoke since arriving on loan from Bordeaux. The 23-year-old will want to get back to scoring ways, however, having failed to net in four league and cup matches. Maja is the 5/1 favourite to score the opening goal of this one.
