- Barnsley have won four of their last five matches
- Preston have lost 11 home Championship games this campaign
- One or both teams have failed to score in each of Barnsley’s last four encounters
Confident Barnsley can claim maximum points again
Surprise package Barnsley are preparing for the Championship playoffs and can show they belong in the top six with victory away to Preston.
Only the top two Norwich (28) and Watford (26) have won more Championship matches than Barnsley (23) this term and the Tykes booked their spot in the playoffs with four wins in their last five matches.
They have won on the road at Luton and Huddersfield recently and look the best bet when they travel to Deepdale, where Preston have won only six times in the league this season.
Compare that with their 11 away wins and it is clear they have been a better side on their travels in 2020-21 and they are therefore worth opposing this weekend. Barnsley have kept things tight recently with three clean sheets in their last four assignments and our correct score prediction is 2-0 in favour of the visitors.
