Plymouth Argyle vs Barnsley Predictions

  • Plymouth only failed to score in one of their five pre-season friendlies
  • Both teams scored in three of Barnsley’s five friendlies
  • Six of the last ten meetings between these two teams have seen both teams net

Plymouth hoping to start strongly

It was a disappointing climax to the season for Plymouth last year, as they missed out on the play-offs by three points after failing to win any of their final five matches.

Manager Steven Schumacher has bolstered his squad by signing the impressive Matt Butcher from Accrington, while attacking options include Mikel Miller and the lively Finn Azaz, who is on loan from Aston Villa.

They should help a team who only failed to score in four of their 23 league outings at Home Park last year, while pre-season friendly results include a 1-1 draw with Swansea and 5-0 thrashing of Torquay.

Barnsley desperate to bounce back

Barnsley have become a bit of a yo-yo team of late and are back in League One after finishing rock bottom of the Championship last season, a year in which they picked up just 30 points.

They have recruited well in their quest for a return to the second tier, and although James Norwood is unlikely to be fit to start, lively midfielder Luca Connell and defender Conor McCarthy could be involved.

New head coach Michael Duff has arrived from Cheltenham and is sure to bring some attacking flair to a side who have beaten Sheffield United (2-1) in their pre-season friendlies.

They have also lost only two of their last 11 matches against Plymouth, scoring in all bar two of those fixtures.

I predict that both teams will net in this game, but it is hard to separate the pair, with a 1-1 draw my correct score prediction.
