Peterborough vs Barnsley Head-to-head

  • The Colliers has defeated this foe in 4 consecutive meetings, most recently in 2018 in a 2-0 score line at home.
  • They have kept clean sheets in all of those fixtures.
  • 3 of those fixtures saw a score line under 2.5 goals.
  • The visitors have won in their last 2 visits to this venue.

Analysis

There are no significant upsides to the hosts’ season this time around as all their points have come against teams in the bottom 8 of the table except their 2-1 win against QPR and the 1-1 draw against Huddersfield both at home. The team is currently in the 22nd position 2 points behind safety with 15 points to their name.

Things have fallen apart for Barnsley since Valérien Ismaël departed for West Brom in June. The team have since tried their luck at managers with Markus Schopp and caretaker Joseph Laumann which did not work as expected. They have recently appointed Poya Asbaghi as the manager who has lost in his first game against Swansea. 

The team are currently 23rd in the league 4 points behind their opponents for the weekend and 10 points clear of Derby. 

Peterborough vs Barnsley Prediction

The away team has scored more than a goal just once this season on the road and with 5 consecutive losses in away games, you would not want to back them to score more than a goal in this fixture. 

The hosts have scored just twice within the first half of the game and are unlikely to break this trend in the fixture given the injuries of the English trio of Jones R.J, Marriott J, and Randall J.
