Barnsley Preview – Can the Tykes seal a fifth straight home win?

Since new manager Valerien Ismael arrived in South Yorkshire, Barnsley have gone from relegation candidates to play-off hopefuls. The Tykes have won ten of their 16 league matches under new management, firing themselves up to ninth as a result.

Barnsley were narrowly beaten by league leaders Norwich City in their previous Championship match. However, the Yorkshire side have been very solid on their own patch in recent weeks, winning their last four league and cup matches at Oakwell. Barnsley have won seven of nine at home across all competitions under Ismael.

Our betting prediction:
Swansea to win to nil
10/3

(odds taken 1753 GMT, Friday 15 January)

 
After starting 2021 with a narrow defeat at Norwich, Barnsley bounced back with a 2-0 Emirates FA Cup win over Tranmere Rovers last Sunday. Can Ismael’s men make it five home wins on the spin with victory over Swansea at the weekend?

Swansea City Preview – In-form Swans to return to South Wales with a massive three points?

Swansea City have had an excellent season so far. After finishing sixth last term, the Swans have kicked on, accumulating an impressive 43 points from 23 matches. The Welsh outfit have picked up 12 wins, drawn seven times and lost just four league games.

Since a shock 2-0 loss at Derby County in mid-December, Cooper’s troops have taken ten points from the last 12 on offer, drawing with Reading and beating Barnsley, Queens Park Rangers and Watford. They also picked up a 2-0 win at Stevenage in the FA Cup last time out.
