Barnsley News and Form – Tykes’ winless run to continue?

After a humiliating 5-1 loss at Preston North End, Daniel Stendel’s time at Oakwell came to an end. Adam Murray took charge of first-team duties for the visit of Swansea City last weekend. Despite going a goal down, the Tykes fought back to claim a handy 1-1 draw. However, with Stoke City winning, Barnsley dropped to the foot of the table.

The Yorkshire club have not tasted victory since shocking Fulham at Oakwell on the opening weekend of the season. On their way to promotion from EFL League One last term, Barnsley won 11 times on the road. However, they have yet to win away from home in this season’s Championship, losing four and drawing one of their five away fixtures. No side have taken fewer away points.

A trip to the Hawthorns to face the league leaders is the last thing that Barnsley need right now, but a positive result in the Midlands could kick-start their campaign. However, the bookies have them priced at 8/1 to get the win.

West Bromwich Albion v Barnsley Predictions

West Bromwich Albion win: The Baggies have won their last three games at The Hawthorns, scoring 11 times along the way. Meanwhile, Barnsley conceded five in their previous away match. On paper, this should be a big win for Bilic’s side. Have a punt on Albion to win -2 at 21/10.

West Brom have scored four in each of their last two at The Hawthorns, beating both Huddersfield Town and Cardiff 4-2. I’m backing the Baggies to score four again on Tuesday in a comfortable 4-0 win, which you can get at the tasty price of 14/1.
