They are also strong at the back, conceding just 14 goals making them one of the best defenses in the league.

Manager Daniel Stendel has done a good job with a broken team after relegation and if this form continues they may be promoted this season itself.
Doncaster is just the opposite of their opponents at the moment. They are winless in the last 5 matches with 3 of them being defeats. Three of those games had a score of over 2.5 goals. The Donny also failed to keep a clean sheet in the recent 6 matches in all competitions.
From their last 6 matches on the road, they have lost 3 and have won 2 also. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of the last 5 matches. Both of those wins came against teams who are way below them in the points table.
With 7 wins and 6 losses, the team managed by Grant McCann are 10th in the league. They lack defensive strength as they conceded 24 goals which are one less than the number of goals they scored. Against a high scoring team like Barnsley, they will have to lose this habit.
