Derby took a draw last time they played. The team traveled to Birmingham meeting Aston Villa. Derby started well with Camron Jerome giving them the lead. Derby let the control of the game which lead to Aston Villa creating some decent chances. Near the end of the game Aston Villa managed to get the draw with Lewis Grabban’s goal.

Barnsley is keeping its head just above the water on a goal difference. The team has equal points with Burton and just 1 more than 23rd Bolton. Barnsley were looking like they will have easier time surviving in the early season. Still near the end things went worse and now the team has to fight for its life.

Last round Barnsley took vital 3 points against Brentford. Moore opened the score in 11th minute. Barnsley dealt another huge blow to Brentford in the early minutes of the second half with McBurnie scoring second. This was enough for The Tykes to take the points with a nice 2-0 victory.

Derby vs Barnsley: Predictions

This one is tough to call. Derby will reach the play offs even with a draw while Barnsley will be fighting for their lives. Still Derby has the class and should take some momentum before the play-offs with a victory sending Barnsley to League 1.
