Reason For Barnsley vs Coventry Predictions

  • Coventry have scored in 19 of their last 20 league games
  • The Sky Blues have seen both teams score in three successive matches in all competitions
  • The Tykes have lost 10 of 13 clashes with Coventry in the second tier

Barnsley were beaten 6-0 at Chelsea on Wednesday night and things are likely to get worse for the Tykes, who remain without defenders Michal Helik and Mads Andersen. Will that cost them at the back in this clash with Coventry?

Coventry have won 12 of their last 16 games in league competition (D3 L1) and have failed to score in just one of their last 20. They have had a high-scoring start to this season, with each of their last three games seeing both teams score.

Meanwhile, Barnsley hit 1.2 goals per home game last season and they have averaged nearly 10 shots per game so far this season, so they should be rewarded going forward soon. ur first prediction here is both teams to score, with the Sky Blues seeing eight goals scored across their opening two matches.

At Championship level, Barnsley have won just three of their last 25 matches against sides newly promoted from League One (D10 L12), winning none of their four games last season. Coventry City have won 10 of their last 13 matches against Barnsley in the second tier (D1 L2). Following that, and given Barnsley’s absences, we think there’s value in backing a 2-1 victory for Coventry.
