Derby County vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday afternoon (12:30) fixture is an important one at both ends of the Championship table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Derby picked up a useful looking point on the road last time out going to Villa Park and getting a draw.  Cameron Jerome had given them a 14th minute lead and they seem headed for an undeserved three points until they conceded six minutes from time.

Barnsley picked up a massive three points at the weekend as they defeated in-form Brentford 2-0.  Kieffer Moore and Ollie McBurnie grabbed a goal each to move them out of the bottom three.

The reverse fixture came in December at Oakwell and the Rams won that one 3-0 thanks to a goal each from Tom Lawrence, Matej Vydra and Andreas Weimann.  It put to an end a run that had seen the home team win each of the last four head-to-head.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Derby are a short price for a game that given their superior goal-difference to Preston that they only must draw and as such I could not be backing them to do so.  Their poor form on the road puts me off Barnsley though so I will look to other markets.

This game could start cagey as both teams are where they need to be and although this could change as things go on both will start out looking for a point.  I like the match to be level at half-time and no goal before 27:00.

Derby County Preview

The Rams run of four points from their last two games means that a chance to finish in the top six at the end of the season is in their own hands.  It is a straight shoot-out between them and Preston for the sixth spot who sit two behind them and with an inferior goal-difference.

At the iPro Stadium, they have won two of their last three having won just one of the seven prior to that.  Matej Vydra has found the back of the net in three of his last four at his own ground.

Each of the last four Derby have played have seen both teams score with three of these going over 2.5 goals.  Only Wolves have been ahead going into the interval more times than the East Midlands outfit this season.

 

Derby County Team News

Ikechi Anya (calf), Kyle McAllister (groin) and Jonathan Mitchell (finger) are doubts while Sam Winnall (cruciate) is out for the season

Barnsley Preview

A win last time out put to an end a four-game winless run and crucially means Barnsley have their fate in their own hands.  They sit in 21st level on points with Burton but with a far superior goal-difference.

Away from Oakwell, they have really struggled losing each of their last five, going six without a win and taking all three points in just two of their last 16.  The Tykes have found the net at least once in seven of their last nine on the road.

Eight of the last 12 the Yorkshire outfit have played have seen both teams find the back of the net with seven of these 12 going over 2.5 goals.  Ollie McBurnie has nine goals since his January loan move from Swansea while Kieffer Moore has four since his permanent move from Rotherham.

 

Barnsley Team News

Adam Jackson (knock), Lloyd Isgrove (hamstring), Matt Mills (back) and Nick Townsend (hand) are all rated doubtful.
