Barnsley vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Barnsley continued their recent struggles going down 3-1 to Aston Villa at Villa Park last time out. The Tykes found themselves two behind in seven, then they pulled one back on the 11th minute through Dimitri Cavare only to ship the third and final goal eight minutes later.

Fulham cruised to victory in their last fixture as they eased past struggling Burton 6-0 at Craven Cottage. Ryan Sessesgnon and Rui Fonte bagged a brace each for the London outfit while Lucas Piazon and Aboubakar Kamara also grabbed one apiece.

The reverse fixture between these sides came on December 23rd and the Cottagers won their third straight against the Tykes. Floyd Ayite and Sheyi Ojo got their goals while Tom Bradshaw netted for the Yorkshire outfit

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given the form of the visitors I imagine they will be a popular bet though a slip up at Hull a few weeks back on the road does make me want to tread with a little caution especially as Wolves came to Yorkshire recently and failed to breakthrough.

Villa hit Barnsley for three in recent times but that was on the road while at Oakwell they have shut out Preston and Wolves recently. Just one of the last eight Tykes home matches have gone over 2.5 goals so this the way to play it. In addition, take an interest in NO in the both teams to score market and consider adding these together in a double.

Barnsley Preview

The Tykes are on a poor run of form with just one from their last 13 league games though three of their last five have ended in draws. They sit in 19th place in the table and are one of seven sides separated by just five points at the bottom.

At Oakwell, they are without a win in six though each of their last three have ended in a draw including a tie with Wolves. They have failed to net in six of their last eight in front of their own fans and just three in total in these matches.

The last seven Barnsley Championship fixtures have produced a total of just ten goals with seven of these coming in two matches and three from the other five. 25 of the 40 goals they have conceded this campaign have come in the first-half.

Barnsley Team News

Gary Gardner can return after missing the game with Villa because he is on loan from the club. Ryan Hedges (thigh), Angus MacDonald (illness) and Adam Jackson (knee) are doubts while Joe Williams will miss the tie through suspension.

Fulham Preview

A run of three straight victories and 16 points from an available 18 in their last six matches means that the Cottagers are right in the promotion mix. They sit in seventh place and are just one off the play-off and eight behind Derby in second.

Away from Craven Cottage, they have won two and drawn one in their last three with victories at high-flying Middlesbrough and Cardiff. The 23 road goals the London outfit have scored this season is the joint-best in the division.

It is 46 goals scored for Fulham this season with 17 of these coming from their last five fixtures. Ryan Sessegnon and Aboubakar Kamara have both netted five goals from their last five league appearances.

Fulham Team News

Floyd Ayite (calf) is a doubt for this game.
