Barnsley vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game will have important implications on the battle to avoid relegation from the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Barnsley will mark their first game under new manager Jose Morais who was formerly an assistant to Jose Mourinho at Inter, Real Madrid and Chelsea. The last game the Tykes played was on February 10th under caretaker boss Paul Harsley and they drew 1-1 with Oliver McBurnie getting their goal. Burton battled out a point in their last match holding Nottingham Forest to a goalless draw on Saturday. The Brewers will be disappointed as they faced ten men for 72 minutes yet could not find a way through despite dominating possession. The reverse fixture came at the end of October at it was a six-goal thriller that the Tykes won 4-2. Lloyd Isgrove, Brad Potts, Joe Williams and Harvey Barnes scored their goals while Matty Lund and Lloyd Dyer converted for Albion.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given that Barnsley have won just one of their last 16 I would not be rushing to back them. Initially, I was keen to side with Burton and the draw in the double chance market but the presence of a new manager will give the Tykes a boost as will the fact they have had a weekend off and will be fresher. A bet I do like is taking the game to be level at half-time which has happened in 18 of the 32 the Brewers have played this season while the Yorkshire side will take a while to adjust to how the new manager wants them to play. The last two Burton games have finished goalless while Barnsley have failed to score in five of their last eight in front of their own fans so backing this fixture to end 0-0 also looks worth a small interest.

Barnsley Preview

It is now five league games without a victory for the Tykes and just one victory from their last 16. They sit in the bottom three and with their next three all against sides in the bottom six they badly need to start picking up points. At Oakwell, they are without a win in eight though four of the last five have finished all-square. Only Burton and Birmingham have scored a lower amount than the 14 home goals they have bagged this season. Not since the 4th November have Barnsley found the back of the net more than once in the same fixture. Tom Bradshaw is their top-scorer with eight league goals though he has failed to find the net in the last nine in all competitions.

Adam Jackson (knee) and Zeki Freyers (unknown) are doubts

Burton Albion Preview

The Brewers are bottom of the Championship but two draws in a row has given them some cause for optimism. They have four of their next six on the road but given 17 of their 26 points have come on their travels this is not necessarily a bad thing. Away from the Pirelli Stadium, they are without a victory in their last three though they have won three of their last six. Only Bolton (nine) have scored a lower amount of road goals than the 11 they netted. The last two Bolton have played ended goalless though the five before that produced a total of 22 goals. They have found the back of the net just four times in their last six in the Championship.

Burton Albion Team News

Tom Flanagan and Ben Turner (both calf injuries) are doubts while Willie Miller (knee) is a long-term absentee for the Brewers.
