Barnsley vs Fulham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 12 March 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Oakwell.

Fulham continue to the best in the Championship, and with the campaign having entered its final stretch, the team is placed well in order to deliver the title. However, the prospect of a return to the top flight will still be the most exciting news for their fans.

They have a lead of 14 points at the top, and also have scored the most number of goals in the league. They are also on a long winning streak, and this momentum will be a huge factor in deciding their results in the coming match-days.

Meanwhile, Barnsley are one of the worst teams in the competition, and are placed 23rd in a table of 24. They need a surplus of at least six points to climb over the relegation cut-off, and it also needs to be mentioned that they have been letting in goals in plenty right from the start of the campaign.

By the looks of things, expect a win for Fulham this Saturday at the Oakwell.
