Newcastle United vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

These two sides have met six times previously with Newcastle winning four of these and two ending all-square. The reverse fixture came in November at Oakwell and it was won by the North Eastern side 2-0 thanks to a brace from Dwight Gayle. The Magpies made it back-to-back victories with a 2-0 victory last time out thanks to a goal each from Christian Atsu and Isaac Hayden.

The Tykes meanwhile were held to a 1-1 draw last time out by Burton with a second goal in two games from George Moncur not enough to secure them all three points.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Wigan are the only of the last six visitors to Newcastle to not find the back of the net and nine of the last 13 have netted at least once. I think Barnsley are capable of finding the back of the net here and Newcastle certainly will so take Yes in the both teams to score market. In addition, take a punt on George Moncur to score at inflated prices because this is away to Newcastle. Moncur has two in two games and registered three shots on target in the last game.

YES both teams to score

George Moncur, first goalscorer, each-way unlimited places

Newcastle United have conceeded only 3 goals in their last 6 games against Barnsley

Barnsley saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Newcastle United Preview

It is two straight victories for Newcastle though overall they have just registered four victories from their last ten. They now sit second in the league with a victory here and Brighton failing to pick up all three points they would be confirmed as champions. At home, it is three victories and one draw from their last four games and just one defeat in their last 12 in front of their own fans. Over the course of the season the Magpies have just the seventh best home record. Only Fulham (83) have scored more goals than the North East side (82) this season while they also have the second best ranked defence (40) behind Brighton. Their fixtures produce an average of 2.71 goals per game with just 21 of 45 going over 2.5 goals. Dwight Gayle is their highest scorer this season with a total of 22 this season.

Newcastle United Team News

Dwight Gayle (hamstring) is a doubt while Curtis Good (groin), Rolando Aarons (broken toe) and James Lascelles (groin) are unlikely to feature.

Barnsley Preview

It is now four without a victory and just one win in the last 13 for the Tykes. They sit 14th in the table and victory here could move then to 12th a heavy loss could drop them down to 16th. On the road, it is five defeats from their last six including in each of their last two. They did well on their travels this season with the joint sixth best away record in the division. Barnsley have not struggled for goals this season with the sixth best attacking record though they have shipped many with the joint fifth worst defensive record. Their fixtures this season have produced a total of 2.84 goals per game though 23 of 45 have gone under 2.5. After the sale of Sam Winnall in January the top scorer remaining at the club is Marley Watkins who has ten goals this season with two in the last five.

Barnsley Team News

Marc Roberts (ankle), Andy Yiaddom (shoulder), Aidy White (pelvis) and Sessi D’Almeida (knee) are all unlikely to feature while Adam Hammill is nearing a return.
