Barnsley vs Cheltenham Predictions

  • Barnsley only lost three of their final nine home games in 2021/22
  • Cheltenham won just one of their final 14 away matches last season
  • Barnsley are undefeated in two previous meetings between the two sides

Can Michael Duff beat his old side?

A disappointing 1-0 defeat to Plymouth last weekend means Barnsley have now, when taking the climax of the 2021/22 season into account as well, lost six successive competitive matches.

That was a first game in charge for Michael Duff, who left Cheltenham to take charge at Oakwell over the summer, and saw his side finish their pre-season preparations with a 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

New signing James Norwood got 30 minutes into his legs last weekend, something that will have done him the world of good, and the Tykes will be hopeful of extending a run of just three defeats in nine at home.

Cheltenham hoping to bounce back

Cheltenham also kicked off the campaign with a defeat seven days ago, losing 3-2 at home to Peterborough, despite leading 2-0 at the break.

That result could have taken a lot of out of Wade Elliott’s side, who have never beaten Barnsley in two previous meetings, a 3-1 defeat and 1-1 draw in 2002/03.

The Robins had a shocking run at the end of last season, winning just one of their final 14 away games, six of which ended in defeat.

This will be a tough game for the visitors and I predict Barnsley will win, with 2-0 my correct score prediction.
