Barnsley vs Fleetwood (By: Saconex)
England League 1
Barnsley (3) vs Fleetwood Town (11)
Barnsley are placed 1 point behind Sunderland (2) with one more match played. This is for sure important for them in order to fight for a direct promotion spot. With only 1 victory in their last 5 matches (1-3-1) they simply have to bounce back today, and I think they will. Last time out ended up by losing 3-1 away vs Burton Albion (10), a disappointing performance specially in their defence.
Fleetwood actually looks pretty solid atm. They are coming from 2-2 at home vs Southend (21), after winning vs Accrington (17) & Plymouth (15). When that being said, their promotion chances isnt the best, taking in mind that there is 10 points up to Doncaster and the last playoff spot. I think chances are good for their undefeated run to stop today.
* Barnsley won the reverse fixture by 1-3 back in September
* Barnsley home record: 12-8-0
* Fleetwood away record: 7-4-9
Barnsley hasnt been on their best level lately, but I think that this is a good opportunity for them to get back winning. They are normally controlling their home games and the guests shouldn’t have the same motivation compared with the hosts here. I expect the hosts to be on fire from start and grab a controlled win. So overall, altough the guests are conceding few goals on their travels, I find value on backing Barnsley to win this match by 2+ goals.
