The Tykes players and fans were distraught after last season and are on the process of rebuilding at the moment.

The team has won 7 games in 15 rounds and are 5th in the league at the moment. They are in contention for promotion and will want to stay in play-off spot or better when this season comes to a close.

Losses in the last 2 games have been a thorn in their path. The last one was against Shrewsbury away. Ethan Pinnock’s hattrick meant a 3-1 loss for the Reds.

Midfielder Kieffer Moore has been the star of their season so far with 7 goals in 14 caps.

The Pirates under Coach Darrell Clarke are on the bottom half of the table. In the 15 matches they played they managed to win only 3 and are just 3 points above relegation zone.

Stefan Payne is the better forward in the team with 2 goals indicating that goal scoring has been a problem.

The last match for the gas was a 2-0 home win against AFC Wimbledon. Edward Upson’s strike and an own goals from Wimbledon defender Nightingale were in their account.

Barnsley vs Bristol Rovers: Head-to-head (h2h)

There are no recent clashes between them. The only h2h between them was played in 1999 FA Cup and Barnsley won 4-1.

The Reds have 5 wins and 3 losses in last 10 matches and 6 of them ended with over 2.5 goals.

At home they have 2 wins in 5 games. Currently they are on a 7 game undefeated streak at home.

Bristol have won 4 and lost 3 from previous 10 games. They are on a 6 game winless streak including 3 defeats away from home.

Barnsley vs Bristol Rovers: Prediction

Even after two consecutive losses Barnsley will be favorites at home in the light of their 7 game unbeaten record at home.

Moore will be the dominant force in the midfield for the home side and may possibly be the main source of goals for them.

If the home defense stays strong the visitors won’t have much luck finding the target.
