Barnsley Preview – Tykes to make it four wins on the trot?

Barnsley recently went on a five-game winless run in the Championship, losing three and drawing two. However, since back-to-back draws with Cardiff City and Nottingham Forest at the end of last month, the Tykes have taken nine points out of nine.

Barnsley head into this one having won three successive matches. The winning run started with a stunning victory over Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium. Since then, Valerien Ismael’s men have beaten Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1632 GMT, Tuesday 23 February)

Ismael’s Reds could be dark horses for the play-offs. The side from South Yorkshire have improved drastically since the Frenchman took over, with the club now just four points away from the top six. Can Barnsley pick up a precious three points on their own patch this Wednesday night?

Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters leave Oakwell with a positive result?

Stoke City’s promotion bid is back on track after two much-needed wins. After a 1-0 home triumph over Sheffield Wednesday last Tuesday, Michael O’Neill’s men thumped Luton Town 3-0 at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday, with Nick Powell (2) and Steven Fletcher getting the goals.

Prior to those wins, Stoke had not picked up three points since a 1-0 victory over Blackburn on 19th December. City slipped away from the play-offs, but six points from an available six has taken them into ninth, just four points behind sixth-place Bournemouth.
