Tip Reasoning

  • Middlesbrough have won their last two home league games, both via a 2-0 score-line.
  • Barnsley have lost their last four Championship fixtures and are without a win in ten league matches (D4, L6).
  • The Tykes have also failed to score in four of their last five outings.

Third home win beckons for Boro

Middlesbrough have secured consecutive 2-0 victories in their last two home outings and Neil Warnock’s side can triumph at Riverside Stadium again this week when they entertain third bottom Barnsley.

Boro followed up their impressive success over Sheffield United here with another comfortable win against Peterborough at the weekend, and while Warnock’s charges have been a team for punters to oppose on the road with just one win from six on their travels, they should be confidently kept on side when turning out this Wednesday’s Yorkshire derby.

Opponents Barnsley were a revelation in reaching the top six last term, but things have gone pear shaped for The Tykes since then boss Valerien Ismael departed for West Brom.

Tykes sliding under Schopp

Barnsley have been hapless under new boss Markus Schopp and the Austrian must surely be on thin ice at Oakwell after failing to oversee a victory in his side’s last ten starts (D4, L6). The Tykes have lost their last four, while they’ve also failed to score in four of their last five matches.

Boro are the clear pick as a result for this week’s encounter and taking Barnsley’s toils in front of goal into account, another 2-0 score-line could be forthcoming for the hosts.
