Barnsley vs Blackburn by Sors
As a result, the hosts climbed in the middle of the standings, with a comfortable eleven-point advantage over the teams in the relegation zone and revived their chances for a place among the first six teams in the league table.
In the matter of fact, more important for my bet is that Barnsley continues to impress in attack, as the hosts scored a total of 38 goals in the previous twenty-two rounds (more than any other team in the league with the exception of Newcastle) and at least one goal in eleven of the previous twelve games at Oakwell this season.
Blackburn continues to struggle at the bottom of the standings, as after some signs of improvement in late November and early December, the guests suffered three consecutive defeats at the hands of Preston (2-3/away), Brighton (2-3/home) and Reading (2-3/home).
It’s obvious that the defense is Blackburn’s Achilles heel, as only two teams in this league conceded more goals since the beginning of the new season (Rotherham and Nottingham).At the same time, Owen Coyle can count on several excellent players in attack in Craig Conway (m / 3 goals), Marvin Emnes (f / 3 goals), Danny Graham (f / 8 goals), Sam Gallagher (f / 9 goals), etc., thanks to whose efforts Blackburn managed to score a total of eleven goals in the previous six rounds and at least one goal in each of the last three visits to Aston Villa (1-2), Newcastle (1-0) and Preston (2-3).
I doubt that any of these two teams will manage to keep clean sheet in this match.
