Barnsley vs Walsall
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 8 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Oakwell Stadium, Barnsley.
The Tykes are clearly determined to make it only a one-year loan in the third tier of the English football judging by the strong start to the new campaign they’ve made.
Barnsley sit third with 14 points from six games so far and they’ll be favourites to keep the scintillating spell of form going on Saturday afternoon when Walsall come to visit Oakwell.
The visitors spent the previous League One term in the bottom half of the standings, but they began the new season in a surprisingly pleasant fashion.
The Saddlers are lock on points with the third-placed Barnsley ahead of the weekend’s fixture as they are yet to suffer a defeat.

Barnsley vs Walsall: Prediction
Barnsley’s boss Daniel Stendel has a true predator in the final third in the like of Kieffer Moore.
The man who bagged 13 goals for Rotherham United in the previous League One term was responsible for the finishing touch for the Tykes so far in the season.
He bagged as many as six goals in last three appearances and he will be our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick here.
The home win should be a banker at 1.44 looking at Barnsley’s form and their H2H record in matches with the Saddlers, but we’ll skip it seeing no value there as the visitors will also come into this undefeated in six league games so far in the season.
As Walsall bagged five goals in last two away fixtures, we will alternatively shoot for the both teams to score option at the 2.00 odds.
