Barnsley vs Newcastle by Shibby

Another Championship game for me. The game will be played at Oakwell, Barnsley and will kick off at 19:45. The game will be played between Barnsley and Newcastle United. The hosts Barnsley started the season very well and found themselves near the top of the tables, however, I think the honeymoon period is now over and I think they realise that this will be a difficult season.

They head into the game tomorrow without a win in their last 5 league games. Their form of late stands at 1 draw and 4 defeats! The games they have lost were against Fulham, Leeds, Brighton and Reading, the 1-1 draw was against Villa.

Their home form has been good, however, the last home game for Barnsley was played on Saturday, however, they game ended in defeat. They lost 4-2 against Fulham, who finally got the win they were searching for. Both teams had scored in just 37 minutes! Barnsley have attacked all season and have looked capable of goals, at both ends. Barnsley's last 3 home games has seen BTTS which stands out to me.

The away side have looked good, I've seen them first hand against Rotherham, defensively they looked good and we struggled to break them down. However, Barnsley at home I think have a chance of putting at least a goal past the title chasing Newcastle.

The visitors are currently sat in 2nd in the table, just 1 point behind Norwich City. The title race will go on for a while, however, I think Newcastle have the team/Fans etc to finish at the top.

Newcastle have the leagues top scorer in Dwight Gale and I'm sure he will look to finish at the top of the charts come the end of the season. Newcastle's form of late has been good, they've won their last 3 games, 2 of the 3 games has seen BTTS, they do look capable of conceding goals, however, I think they will often score.

I'll be backing BTTS in the game at a price of 1.80 with 10Bet. Good luck all.

Bet: Both teams to score @ 1.80 with 10Bet
Result: 0-2 (lost)
