## Reason For Barnsley vs Shrewsbury Betting Tips

A win from their home match against Fleetwood last weekend was an absolute must for Daniel Stendel’s men, and a win is exactly what they got. Having taken a big three points last weekend, the Tykes remain inside the top two, though there’s now not, not two, but three teams hunting them down, so it’s important that they continue to collect maximum points.

Barnsley’s attacking performance was a good one last week; they got on the front foot, forced the issue, created plenty of chances and, crucially, scored plenty of goals. A repeat of such attacking antics on Friday would likely see the Tykes claim another important three points. However, doing as well offensively against a useful Shrewsbury rear-guard will not be easy.

For all Barnsley impressed against a Fleetwood side that didn’t really perform last weekend, they’ve delivered below par efforts at home against both Coventry and Sunderland of late, so it wouldn’t be too surprising if they failed to do lots of damage against the Shrews, who’re not averse to stopping teams.

In terms of quality, the hosts have enough about them to beat most teams in this division, but they’ve not exactly been infallible, even at this venue, as draws against the likes of Coventry, Burton, Plymouth, Walsall and AFC Wimbledon suggest.

The Shrews are far from being one of League One’s top teams, but what they are is reasonably solid. Friday’s visitors are also no strangers to upsetting the better sides, as they’ve beaten the likes of Doncaster, Coventry and Peterborough, all of whom are in the current top eight, while they’ve also held the likes of Portsmouth and Sunderland to draws. Moreover, when this pair met in the reverse fixture, Shrewsbury emerged victorious, winning by three goals to one.

Even on the road, Shrewsbury are no mugs. Sam Ricketts’ men arrive at Oakwell having won each of their last two on the road, conceding zero goals in the process. The fact that the Shrews have shipped an average of just 1.09 expected goals on their travels also tells us that they’re not the easiest to get at.

At the end of the day, the league table shows us that Barnsley are a better side than Shrewsbury, though that doesn’t always count for much. Crucially, the Shrews aren’t as poor as their league position suggests, nor is the disparity between themselves and the Tykes as big as the current odds suggest. Friday’s visitors also have a habit of upsetting the big teams. Add in a couple of pleasing recent away-day efforts and the fact that Barnsley haven’t always convinced in recent times and it’s easy to feel that the visitors have been slightly overlooked in the early betting. Backing ‘Shrewsbury +1 Handicap’ offers punters a slice of value.

## Barnsley Team News
