Barnsley v Blackburn Prediction - Preview

Barnsley FC

Barnsley are currently seated 17th at the table in the Championship. They drew their most recent encounter against Stoke City when they visited Britannia Stadium. Sam Surridge put the hosts ahead in the 17th minute, but the Tykes levelled 21 minutes later with Cauley Woodrow’s netter. Both sides failed to find the back of the net of the second half, with each settling for 1 point in the table. Manager Markus Schopp was pleased with the fight his team showed, even though the match got ugly near the end when some of Stoke’s coaching staff went into Barnsley technical area and were sent off as a result. They now head back home to host higher-placed Rovers in the next fixture.

Blackburn Rovers FC

Blackburn Rovers are now 8th in the league table, nine places ahead of Barnsley. They scored a big win against Hull City in their last outing at Ewood Park. After an uneventful first half, Spanish defender Daniel Ayala headed in the breakthrough goal in the 61st minute, off of a corner from Joe Rothwell. It took only four minutes for the Blue and Whites to double the lead, as Chilean-English striker Ben Brereton Diaz finished with his fourth goal of the season off of midfielder Lewis Travis’ assist. Manager Tony Mowbray praised his squad after the much-needed win, which takes Rovers back up the standings. They now hit the road again to take on a struggling Barnsley side, who are itching to find their rhythm.
