Barnsley vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 10 March 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Oakwell (Barnsley).
Barnsley remains unscathed in their winning run for the seventh consecutive game in the league. The host has now stayed unbeaten in the last nine championship fixtures in their schedule. The Tykes will host on the back of a 1-0 win at home against the likes of Birmingham in the previous encounter.
Derby couldn’t meet the expectations after Rooney stepped into the manager role this term. The Rams have won only one of their last five championship games. They will visit on the back of a 1-0 loss on the road against Coventry last time out in the campaign.

Barnsley vs Derby Prediction
Barnsley has what it takes to keep their cool against the guest on Wednesday. The seven-game winning streak in the campaign will back the host for a win in ninety minutes. The host enjoys the ground advantage and is not likely to break their streak, especially against a weaker side.
Derby has a poor record on the road this season, as they have only five wins from 17 outings. Three of their last five overall wins in the championship, came at home, which suggests a struggle on the road for the Rams in the upcoming fixture.
With the host coming in hot, expect an open game at Oakwell. The Tykes have scored 42 goals in their 34 appearances until now. In the meantime, the Rams have conceded 38 goals in the same period. The visitor has slotted in only 25 goals so far this season.
Based on these stats, expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes on Wednesday. Besides, the draw no bet over Barnsley will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns in the clash.
