Barnsley vs Bolton Wanderers
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Oakwell Stadium (Barnsley).
A real buzz is expected in and around Oakwell Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Barnsley are about to host Bolton Wanderers in a true relegation six-pointer. Teams are separated by two points right on the brink of the drop zone ahead of the weekend’s match-up.
The visitors are in a somewhat better situation being two points above and they will be happy with a draw here. However, their form does not promise such an outcome as the Trotters lost four on the bounce in Championship. Bolton were particularly uninspired in the final third ion recent ties and they will head into this after failing to score ion last three games. Things look even worse for Boilt6on in matches away from home where they lost five and drew three of last eight in the competition.
The Tykes will thus have a nice opportunity to back up the fine couple of displays from the most recent set of fixtures at Oakwell Stadium. They took four points in last two home games netting as many as five goals in the process. Given that the opposition included the likes of Bristol City and Sheffield United, we can only praise such form. Tom Bradshaw and Oliver McBurnie were both on target in the home win over the Blades last weekend. This duo should have plenty of space to create in the final third past the struggling defensive line on Bolton’s here.
