Tip Reasoning

  • Cardiff have lost their last five Championship matches, which prompted the departure of Neil Harris and the appointment of Mick McCarthy as Bluebirds boss.
  • Barnsley have also lost their last three Championship starts.
  • Cardiff secured a resounding 3-0 victory in November’s reverse fixture.

Response Forthcoming From Stricken Bluebirds

Cardiff could well be worth supporting to make a winning start under new boss Mick McCarthy when the Bluebirds take on Barnsley at Oakwell this Wednesday night.

McCarthy replaces the outgoing Neil Harris after a woeful run of five straight defeats for the Bluebirds and the 61 year-old’s first game in charge comes against his hometown club and the side he turned out for over 250 times in the late seventies and early eighties.

Cardiff would make zero appeal here but for the managerial change, but there’s a sense that McCarthy’s arrival may just spark City into life.

They comfortably beat Barnsley 3-0 in November’s reverse fixture and they take on a Tykes outfit this week who have been in similarly poor form.

Valerian Ismael’s charges edged out Norwich City 1-0 here in the FA Cup at the weekend, but they come into this contest on the back of three consecutive league losses.

McCarthy’s arrival is sure to generate some form of response from the Cardiff players and with that November success in the Welsh capital also in mind, we’re recommending a small wager on the away side this Wednesday alongside a 0-1 correct score prediction, as Barnsley have failed to net in five of their dozen home outings this term.
