Walsall vs Barnsley (By: Luke)

After three games with no loss, players of Walsall now suffered two defeats in a row. Firstly at home 2:3 against Portsmouth and then away to Sunderland with a 2:1 result. They took an early lead, but couldn't hold overall far more quality opponent. They are now in extreme need of points, being tied up with safely placed Southend.

Barnsley comes from two consecutive goalless games, coming from a draw away to Doncaster. At the same moment, they remained undefeated in last fourteen rounds having six games in a row without a single goal conceded. The side is now just two points above third Sunderland and needs to seek a victory.

The hosts continue to miss defender Roberts (0/0) and midfielder Chambers (1/0) as a really long-term absentees. The guests miss forward Moore (27/16).

  • Walsall have seen over 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 home matches against Barnsley.

Barnsley remains a favorite and I see them being closer to get the victory here, however not without any problem. Walsall seems quite potent to threaten, especially when playing in front of own fans and both teams scoring at least once shouldn't be a problem. The guests looked very firm at the back, but six consecutive matches are already more than enough of a run.
