Barnsley vs Hull City Prediction

Barnsley faced a routine loss the last match-day, against Middlesbrough. The former was on the road and did try their best to overcome the away handicap. And to be frank, Barnsley did succeed in the first half in keeping the scoresheet blank.

However, in the first few minutes of the second half, the hosts found the back of the net and then held the slender lead till the very end.

Hull meanwhile, completely dismantled Preston with the aid of home advantage. The hosts had put on a totally dominating performance, and completely took control over all aspects of the game. The first half saw the home team fire in a single goal, and then later followed it up with three in the second.

For this weekend’s clash, consider the form Barnsley have been on the last several match-days. They are winless in the previous 18 straight games and lost 12 of these. They have conceded twice or more in eight of their previous ten fixtures, and are on a streak of nine winless games in front of the home crowd.

On the other hand, Hull just recorded a massive 4-0 victory and were unbeaten in 11 of their previous 14 games. They had also won four of their preceding six match-ups, and on the road, have lost just once in their prior nine trips.

Finally, take into account the fact that Hull have scored in every h2h clash since 2014, and that they are unbeaten in such games at this venue since 2013.

Considering all these stats together, rightfully expect a strong performance from Hull.
