Barnsley vs Bristol City Prediction

The hosts continued their winless run last week after Huddersfield took them down with a 2-1 scoreline on the road. With no more than eight points under their belt, the home side have deservedly hit rock bottom in the ladder.

Barnsley have hardly been faring any better in the comforts of their home. The squad have been sharing the spoils in their last two games here and have admitted defeat in three of their previous five.

Bristol City, on the other hand, are currently in contention for the top spot and are just three points shy of being level with group leaders West Brom. The visitors are also on a two-match unbeaten streak at the moment and have been at the losing end just once in their last ten games.

Furthermore, the away side have looked resolute in their clashes on the road so far and have secured a point at the least in six of their past seven fixtures in the Championship. However, as aforementioned, the hosts have salvaged a point in each of their previous two games here.

Given that their last three meetings with each other at Oakwell have also finished as a draw, the safest punt would be a double chance in favor of Bristol City.

Additionally, there has been no dearth of goals in their previous h2h clashes here. Six of their last seven encounters here have witnessed goals down either end. With Bristol City conceding a goal or more in all of their outings so far too, count on both teams to have their names on the scoresheet in this one.
