Doncaster vs Barnsley Prediction & Match Preview

Doncaster vs Barnsley
England – League One
Date: Friday, 15th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster).

Barnsley is desperately trying to catch Luton at the top, and whichever teams have strayed in the path of the former, have been cast away. Just three points separate the two teams at the top, and with Luton having it easy this weekend, considering they are pitted against the 23rd team in the table, Barnsley has no option but to give all they have on the pitch and take the three points on offer.

Doncaster will want to keep holding on to their playoff spot, but their recent results have returned a contrasting view. They have not won in their last four match-days in the League One and failed to win in both of their last two games at home. In any sense, not a good time to host a focussed and desperate Barnsley.

Doncaster vs Barnsley Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last time Doncaster won was in 2015.

  • Six of the last ten wins belong to Barnsley.
  • Barnsley avoided the loss in the reverse fixture of this tie.

Doncaster vs Barnsley Prediction

Doncaster is winless in their last five games in a row and repeated the feat in their last two home ties as well. Barnsley, on the other hand, is unbeaten in their last 11 games on the trot and lost just thrice in their last 28. On the road, they are on another unbeaten run of five fixtures. Add to these, that Luton, the current league-topper is taking on one of the worst teams in the competition, and this forces Barnsley to record the three points somehow.

Coming to goals, Barnsley registered just two goals in their last five matches, and failed to score completely in three of their last five. Importantly, Barnsley kept clean sheets in their last four fixtures in a row, and in their last two away ties as well. And importantly, they have conceded the least number of goals in League One. They are odds-on favorite to keep a clean sheet in the first half, considering the importance of this match.
