Bitesize Prediction: Barnsley vs Burton – 17/12/22

Competition: League One

Market: Barnsley win

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the League One table, Barnsley will welcome Burton to Oakwell on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Barnsley might have lost their Championship status last season, Michael Duff’s men have their sights set on clinching an immediate second-tier return this time around. Last seen on December 2nd when laying down another marker as they picked up a 2-1 victory away at Peterborough, the Tykes should find the mood in their camp at a high. Tipped as a leading promotion contender, the former Cheltenham boss has seen his side gain plenty of plaudits. In fact, it should be noted that the Yorkshire-based outfit have now won six of their previous seven contests across all formats. Likewise, with that extended purple patch stemming all the way back to October 25th, Barnsley have also caught the eye at Oakwell this season. Winning each of their last three home fixtures by an aggregate score of 8-1, Duff’s side should be smelling a chance here.

As for the visitors, while Burton might have played out a stalemate in each of their last four League One outings, Dino Maamria’s men are at the heart of a relegation scrap. Making the trip to Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon sat four points adrift of safety, the Yellows will be more than aware that they face a huge task this weekend. Mustering just a single win from any of their previous 10 contests across all formats, the ex-Oldham boss has also seen his squad show some extended issues on the road. On a run that is highlighted by a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Sheffield Wednesday, Burton are without an away win to their name since September 20th. Two sides who find themselves scrapping it out at opposite ends of the League One standings, we’re backing a home victory here.

Bet: Barnsley 10/11 to beat Burton in Saturday’s League One matchup @ 888sport
