Fulham vs Barnsley Match Preview
Fulham were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day by Millwall. The former was level on points with Leeds before the game, and if they had managed a win, the team would have climbed to the second spot in the table.
However, Leeds still look as if they are going through a terrible spell, and Fulham need to make the most of it, before they would recover.
Leeds have a tough match-up coming up this game week, and most probably with a win this weekend, some rearrangement could be expected in the top-most tier.
In the meantime, Barnsley lost at home against Birmingham, and the scoreline was 0-1. It was the fifth loss of the team in their last six match-ups, and the sixth winless game on the trot.
The defeat more than justified the stay of the team at the bottom-most of the table. Time is fast running out for Barnsley, as the season approaches its end. They need to make a surplus of nine points to avoid getting the boot even by the slightest margin.
Fulham vs Barnsley Prediction
Fulham are currently placed third in the table, and are level on points with the second-placed Leeds. With the former having a tough fixture this match-day, Fulham will try their level best for a win, in order to climb to the second spot. And this in turn, will allow them to skip the playoffs, and get promoted directly.
Fulham also have the home advantage, and used to ply their trade in the Premier League the last season. On the other hand, Barnsley are placed bottom-most in the table, and are front-runners to get relegated this summer.
To pile on, they are also on the road, and are a team that used to play in the third tier of the English Football system the last season.
Moreover, they have a total of just two wins on the road in 2019-20, while Fulham have been on ominous form with a single-minded objective of getting promoted.
By all means, expect the hosts, Fulham to deliver a massive win this weekend.
