Tip Reasoning

  • There have been three or more goals in six of Swansea’s last seven games
  • Barnsley have failed to keep a clean sheet in ten matches
  • Nine of the Tykes’ last ten fixtures have ended in defeat

Barnsley haplessly out of form

Since Valerian Ismael swapped Oakwell for the Hawthorns in the summer, Barnsley have seriously struggled and sit in the Championship relegation zone with just 11 points from 18 games.

One of their big failings has been in defence, with the 29 goals conceded so far the third worst record in the division. Things seem to be getting worse, too, as that flaky backline has been breached at least twice in five of the last six matches.

Having lost nine in ten, it is difficult to see where a change in fortunes is coming, especially against a Swansea side who have scored in nine of their last eleven matches.

Swansea proving inconsistent

The South Wales outfit may be scoring goals, but they are conceding them too, and that offers a chink of light for Barnsley.

Swansea have shipped 18 goals in nine away games – only Peterborough have a worse record – while Barnsley have netted six times in their most recent five games.

The Swans, however, are much more capable of winning games, including an impressive 2-1 victory at Coventry earlier this month.

In six of their last seven matches away from the Liberty Stadium, there have been three or more goals, and given both sides’ defensive records, I expect that trend to continue in this fixture, so I am predicting a 2-1 Swansea win.
