Barnsley vs Huddersfield Town Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Yorkshire derby sees two teams with hopes of promotion this season doing battle at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon (15:00). Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

It is honours even from their last seven meetings with both sides winning three each and one of the games ending in a draw. The last time they met was on August 20th and it was Huddersfield who came out on top 2-1.  The Terriers took the lead through Chris Löwe before Alfie Mawson levelled for the Tykes and the game seemed headed for a draw until Jonathan Hogg netted a 90th-minute winner for Town.

Defeat at home to Brighton last time out put to an end a three-game unbeaten run for Barnsley. A second-half brace from Sam Baldock proved the difference between the sides in which the Tykes could find no way past David Stockdale.

Huddersfield beat Reading 1-0 in midweek to make it six straight victories in the Championship. They had an 82nd minute Philip Billing goal to thank for them claiming all three points.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Huddersfield have kept Reading and Man City quiet in recent weeks while Barnsley failed to fire in three of the last four since the sales of Sam Winnall and Conor Hourihane.  Take the Terriers to keep a third consecutive clean sheet here.

It might also be worth a small stake on the correct score market at 2-0 to Huddersfield. This has been the result in three of the four previous Barnsley have played against the top three sides.

Barnsley Preview

Five points from their last five games means that Barnsley have lost pace on the teams above them in the play-off race. They sit ninth currently nine points behind Sheffield Wednesday having played the same number of games as the Owls.

It is just one win in their last six in all competitions at Oakwell and this is reflected in that the Tykes are just the 19th best-ranked home team in the Championship. They have won just two of their seven previous home matches when they entertain top ten sides.

The Yorkshire side tend to be involved in high scoring games with 18 of their 33 league fixtures going over 2.5 goals and ten of 17 at their own ground. If you take out a 3-1 victory over Villa they have found the net just twice in their last five. Both teams to score has happened in four of their six at home to the top eight.

Huddersfield Preview

18 points from a possible 18 in the last six Championship games means that Huddersfield are the form team in the division. They sit third now and are just six four behind Brighton in second and five beneath Newcastle at the top of the table.

Town have won five of their last six away from home with that one defeat coming at Sheffield Wednesday.  This is the first of their two remaining away matches to teams in the top half of the table and they have lost six of these nine.  

Four of their last five in the league have seen both teams score and have gone over 2.5 goals. Away from home, the Terriers have just the 13th best ranked attacked and the same position for the defence. Three of their last four have seen a goal in the last 15 minutes.
