Sitting inside the relegation zone, Barnsley are in some big trouble. However, the Tykes have gone through a recent revival, having won their last two games. Can they keep their momentum going as they visit Hull who are on a long winless streak?

Barnsley on the up but still in trouble

Back to back wins over Fulham and Middlesbrough have given Barnsley’s survival hopes a huge lift. Those were clean-sheet victories as well. The away record of Barnsley in this season’s Championship is W2 D3 L11.

They collected a win at Fulham in their last away game, snapping a three-match losing streak that they had been on out on the road. Barnsley are still averaging under a goal per away game this season, having netted 15 in 16 played.

Barnsley have conceded at an average of 1.7 goals per away game this season, taking a clean sheet in 19% of away fixtures.

To sum it all up, they have the joint-worst away record in the second tier (alongside Luton). Luton are the only team who have conceded more league goals in this season’s Championship then Barnsley.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Correct Score

Their win over Middlesbrough on the weekend still left the Tykes five points from safety. So there is still a huge hill for them to climb in order to get safe.

Of the goals that they have conceded away from home this season, a massive 70% of them have come after the halftime break. In just four of their sixteen games out on the road in this campaign, Barnsley have opened the scoring in.


Can Hull end their winless streak?

It has been eight league games since Hull last claimed a victory. It has been a rough old ride for the Tigers who only took two points from that sequence of eight games.

In their last home game, they played out a 4-4 draw with Swansea on Valentine’s Day, snapping a three-match losing streak on home soil that they had been on. Hull have hit the back of the net in each of their last three home games.

The Tigers have averaged 1.6 goals per home game this season, so have been fairly reliable in front of goal at least.

65% of their home fixtures in this season’s Championship have ended above the 2.5 goal line. However, each of their last three at home against Barnsley in all competitions have gone the other way.

There are clear defensive problems for Grant McCann’s side at the moment. They have conceded at least two goals in all but one of their last six Championship fixtures. On the weekend they were leading 1-0 at half time at Preston.

But their defence fell apart in the second half and lost 2-1. Hull’s home record against teams in the bottom half of the table (after last weekend’s round of action) is W4 D1 L2, which isn’t bad. The Tigers scored at least two goals in all but one of those seven games.


Hull vs Barnsley Betting Advice

Hull are on the ropes at the moment, but they should be able to at least avoid defeat in this fixture. The Tigers may not come under such big defensive pressure against the joint second-lowest scoring team in the league.
