Blackpool vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Blackpool will welcome Barnsley at the Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking to progress in the 4th round of the FA Cup. Blackpool suffered a 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Mansfield last time out in the League Two, with Gary Bowyer’s men conceding the goal in the first half. Meanwhile, Barnsley managed a narrow 0-1 victory on the road at Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Monday thanks to a late goal by Conor Hourihane.

Blackpool Preview

Blackpool have enjoyed a decent League Two campaign so far this season and find themselves in a comfortable 10th position in the standings, just four points off the play-offs. Despite they sit only in 10th place in the league table, Blackpool still hold one of the best defensive records in the division with just 25 goals conceded in 24 rounds. At the other end of the pitch, they managed a decent tally of 36 goals, including nine goals from their topscorer Kyle Vassell. On home soil, Blackpool were on a nine-game unbeaten streak in all competitions prior to their most recent two defeats at the hands of Luton and Mansfield. Furthermore, Blackpool are unbeaten in the last two home meetings with Barnsley in all competitions, conceding just once in this term. Regarding their current FA Cup campaign, Blackpool managed back-to-back wins over Kidderminster and Brackley in the opening two rounds. Prior to these victories, Blackpool were on a four-game losing streak in the FA Cup. Their home form in the FA Cup has been a complete mixed bag with four wins, three defeats and two draws in their last nine home fixtures in the competition.

Barnsley Preview

On the flip side, Barnsley extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to four games on Monday thanks to a narrow 0-1 win on the road at Nottingham Forest. The win lifts Barnsley in 8th spot in the standings with 38 points under their belts after 25 rounds, just four points off the 6th-placed Sheffield Wednesday. Barnsley have been scoring goals for fun throughout this Championship campaign, as they have one of the best offensive records in the division with 43 goals scored in 25 rounds. Actually, the Tykes managed to score at least two goals in three of their last four league fixtures. Sam Winnall has been Barnsley’s most in-form player in front of goal so far this season, as the 25-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 11 goals in his 22 league appearances. Barnsley can count on their recent away form ahead of this clash, as they have only lost once in their last six games in the Championship. Furthermore, Barnsley picked up two victories in their last five visits to the Bloomfield Road. Regarding their recent FA Cup history, Barnsley were eliminated in the first round of the competition last year and managed to reach the 3rd round two years ago.

I’m backing Barnsley to pick up a victory in this one, as they looked much better than Blackpool over the past few weeks. Furthermore, Barnsley are undefeated in the last three meetings with Blackpool in all competitions and scored at least two goals in each of these.
