Tip Reasoning

  • Barnsley have lost two of their last four games while Peterborough have won two of their last five.
  • At least three goals have been scored in seven of Peterborough’s last ten away Championship contests.
  • Peterborough have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 12 games.

Time’s up for two relegation-bound rivals

Time is running out for both Barnsley and Peterborough to pull themselves out of the relegation zone – which is why Monday’s matchup could be quite an open, offensive affair. Reading’s shock win at Bramall Lane on Friday has given the Royals the luxury of a ten-point cushion heading into the last four games of the season.
The Tykes tried to grab all three points at Swansea, but couldn’t resist when the hosts stepped up their game. This doesn’t necessarily feel like a truly winnable clash either after Peterborough gained some late-season momentum, although too late to make a difference.
The Posh came from a goal down to beat ten-man Blackburn, showing some real quality in the final third and not relying on in-form striker Jonson Clarke-Harris for their goals. These are all big positives for Grant McCann’s side ahead of this fixture and a number of their recent displays have included string finishes – suggesting they are fresher than most at this late stage of the campaign.

Posh have punch but no prospect of a clean sheet

That fact, alongside Barnsley’s recent collapse at Millwall, is enough to persuade us the Posh are a play to win at Oakwell. They still don’t look capable of keeping a clean sheet, however, so the recommendation here would be to back an away win with both teams on the scoresheet.
A 2-1 victory, not unlike Peterborough’s Good Friday win, could well be on the cards.
