Barnsley vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (13:00) 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 picked up a point in midweek as they drew 1-1 with Norwich at Oakwell on Tuesday night.  Olly McBurnie gave them the lead with his sixth goal in seven matches but the Canaries fought back to rescue a point.

Millwall stretched their unbeaten run to 11 games last weekend when they defeated Brentford 1-0 at the Den.  George Saville put them ahead after just one minute and despite chances for both sides no more goals were scored.

The reverse fixture came in September and the Tykes won that one 3-1 thanks to a Tom Bradshaw brace and a Mamadou Thiam (penalty) a Lee Gregory penalty was the Lions consolation.  The pair also met in Janaury in the FA Cup again at the Den and the London outfit won that one 4-1 with an Aiden O’Brien brace and one each from Fred Thompson and Fred Onyedinma with the Yorkshire side getting a consolation from Brad Potts in a game that also saw Joe Williams dismissed.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

The visitors are strong favourites to win this game though the price does not offer much appeal to me.  Although several months ago Barnsley have already beaten them this season and I would not be shocked if they did the same here although I would not be backing them to do so.

Each of the last four at Oakwell have seen both teams score while Millwall have netted in each of their last six on the road so both teams to score looks the bet.  Both these teams have been scoring early goals so try backing the game go over 1.5 goals in the opening 45 minutes.

Barnsley Preview

The Tykes are without a win in four though have drawn two of these and sit just above the bottom three.  The run in is reasonable with three of the next four at home and just one of their nine remaining against a side in the top six and they face none of the in-form big four (Wolves, Cardiff, Fulham and Aston Villa).

At Oakwell, they are without a victory in ten though five of the last seven played here have finished all-square.  Each of the last four and five of their last six in front of their own fans have seen both teams score.

The last six and ten of the last 11 goals that Barnsley have scored in the league have come in the first hour of a tie.  Each of their last five meetings with Millwall including both this season have seen both teams score and gone over 2.5 goals.

 

Barnsley Team News

Matt Mills (ankle) is their only doubt ahead of this game.

 

Millwall Preview

The Lions are in great form at the moment winning five of their last six in the league and going 11 without defeat.  This run has moved them into tenth just six points behind Middlesbrough in sixth and with dreams of cracking the play-offs.

Away from the Den, they have won each of their last five managing to keep clean sheets in three of these.  Ten of the 16 goals they have scored on the road this season have come in their last five.

George Saville is in good goalscoring form and has netted in each of his last two appearances for Millwall.  Only Burton (21) have been level more times at half-time than the London outfit (20).

 

Millwall Team News

Aiden O’Brien (ankle) is a doubt while Byron Webster (knee) has been ruled out for the season.
