Tip Reasoning

  • The visitors have been winning at halftime in five of the last seven meetings.
  • The Tykes have lost their last seven games and haven’t won any of their previous 13.
  • Barnsley have conceded at least two goals in their last three league games.

Barnsley to sink to the bottom

The hosts will take to the field for the first time since manager Markus Schopp was sacked following their seventh loss in a row over the weekend. That result sees them sitting just a place from the bottom side, which interestingly is Derby County. In fact, the only reason the home side are not sitting at the bottom is due to their opponent’s point deduction, but that could all change come full time. Although, each of Barnsley’s last three games under a new caretaker boss have ended level with both teams scoring.

Derby County are an organised and resilient side under manager under Wayne Rooney, they’ve avoided defeat in seven of their eight league games prior to a 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers last time out. However, The Rams away form is still horrendous as they have failed to win in 15 of their last 16 away league games. Derby County’s games are averaging just 1.6 goals per game on average and considering the priority for these two teams will be to avoid defeat, it would be surprising to see an influx of goals here.

Derby to bounce back

A win for Derby would see them leapfrog Barnsley and help them in their quest to defy the points deduction and stay in the league, but defeat would be a blow. It’s a similar story for Barnsley but it’s a big ask for the new caretaker boss to stop the rot. The visitors can look at their defeat to a resurgent Blackburn Rovers side at the weekend as a minor hiccup, they have that bit between their teeth and we think if anyone is going to win this game, it will be the visitors.
