Barnsley Preview – Can Tykes take 1st leg lead?

If someone had said at the start of the Championship season that Barnsley would be in the play-offs challenging for a spot in the Premier League they would probably have been carted off to the nearest psychiatric unit but Barnsley are now just three games away from returning to the top flight.

It’s been an amazing season either way for Barnsley who were fully expected to struggle against relegation in this campaign but the Yorkshire club have defied all the odds to achieve a top six finish, having lost just three of their last 21 matches overall.

Two of these three defeats were away from home while Barnsley have been tough to beat at Oakwell, losing just one of their last 11 matches but they did fall to a 2-0 loss at home to tonight’s visitors, Swansea City in mid-January, so they’ll be keen to avenge that defeat here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Swansea City Preview – Can Swans pull off another win at Oakwell?

Swansea City finished in 4th place in the Championship in what was also an impressive and solid campaign for the Welsh club under manager, Steve Cooper, but the visitors weren’t entirely convincing in the season run-in.

With just three wins from their final 11 matches of the regular season in the second tier which consisted of wins against Millwall, Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County, The Swans also succumbed to six defeats within this period and question marks are still hovering over their results away from home.

Swansea have won just two of their last six matches on the road, failing to score in three of these six games as well, so they may face a tougher evening against Barnsley than they did back in January.
