Tip Reasoning

  • Barnsley have conceded first in six of their last seven matches.
  • The visitors are rooted to the foot of the table and are yet to win on the road this season.
  • Coventry City are conceding less than a goal per home game on average this campaign.

Playoffs still possible for the hosts

Coventry City have had a much more impressive campaign thus far. They’re currently 13 points better off at this stage than they were after 30 games last season and it marks a significant improvement from the West Midlands outfit. However, they have struggled to maintain the pace that they set during the earlier stages of this season and this is highlighted by the fact that they have managed to secure just a solitary victory across their last four league outings. Thye have games in hand over some sides above them and a spot in the playoffs isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.

Barnsley comes into this one coming off the back of their first league victory since the beginning of November, 14 games ago. However, that was just their third win of the season and they’re yet to taste victory on the road despite 15 attempts. They will feel confident after dispatching QPR last time out but they have been defeated in 11 of their last 12 road matches.

Barnsley’s wait for an away victory to go on

It’s hard to make a case for Barnsley to secure a positive result here and we’re expecting the hosts to make Barnsley’s wait for that elusive away victory to continue here. Expect a Coventry City win, possibly by a 2-1 scoreline.
