Barnsley News and Form – Can the Tykes pick up a rare win?

The Tykes were promoted from EFL League One as runners-up last term. However, the South Yorkshire club have found it tough going in the second tier so far, winning only one of their 14 matches. That sole victory came on the opening weekend, as Barnsley sealed a shock 1-0 home win over Fulham, who had just dropped down from the Premier League.

Barnsley, who are under the interim management of Adam Murray, lost a six-pointer at Huddersfield Town last weekend, which saw the Tykes remain at the foot of the Championship table. Overall, the club have taken just eight points from a possible 42.

Barnsley have struggled at Oakwell this season. Since beating Fulham, the Tykes have drawn three and lost four of seven on home turf in all competitions. Murray’s men are in desperate need of a win, but they head into Friday’s fixture as the underdogs.

Bristol City News and Form – Robins to claim a fourth away league victory on Friday?

Bristol City have been very solid away from home so far. Lee Johnson’s troops have won three, drawn three and lost only one of seven. However, that sole away defeat came in their last matchup on the road, as City crashed to a heavy 3-0 loss at Luton Town. Since then, they have taken four points from two league games at Ashton Gate.

Bristol’s recent loss at Luton was their first defeat since August. The club have made a strong start to their Championship campaign, winning six of their opening 14 games. Overall, the Robins have won six, drawn six and lost just two.

Three points at Oakwell on Friday night will lift Bristol City into joint top with West Bromwich Albion on 27 points before the others play. The visitors are the 11/8 favourites in South Yorkshire.

Barnsley vs Bristol City Predictions

Bristol City win: Johnson’s Robins are one of the in-form teams in the Championship. Despite a minor blip at Kenilworth Road recently, City have been pretty faultless since their opening weekend loss to Leeds United at Ashton Gate, which remains their last home defeat.

Things could not get much worse for Barnsley at present. The recent sacking of the popular Daniel Stendel hasn’t helped the situation, either. Unfortunately for Murray and his men, I can see them crashing to a ninth league defeat of the season on Friday. Put some money on the away team to win -1 at 10/3.

Despite their woeful form, Barnsley have scored in each of their last six Championship games. With that in mind, take a punt on Bristol City to win and both teams to score at Oakwell at 3/1.
