Home side has a variable start of the season as they picked up four points from the opening three rounds. Although they opened the campaign with an away victory, Keith Hill’s side failed to celebrate in the following two matches.

The hosts have been playing pretty well in the front, while their defence needs to tighten up as they allowed seven gals so far.

Rochdale managed to secure the survival with a victory in the final round last season and skip Oldham Athletic on the 20th place.

Although they have lost just five times at home ground last season, the hosts have been involved in many draws.

Barnsley weren’t so lucky as their opponents in the final round of the last season as they suffered a relegation from the Championship. They stayed two points below the red line mostly because of their very poor defending.

They’ve been putting poor away performances as the visitors celebrated only four victories at away grounds.

However, this time they want to bounce back to the second tier and they’ve started the season pretty successfully by winning seven points in three rounds.

Liam Lindsay and the lads managed to tighten up the defence as they still haven’t conceded.

Rochdale vs Barnsley: Head-to-head

Barnsley have been much more successful in their head to head clashes as they booked four victories in last five encounters. In those five clashes, one of the sides managed to keep the clean sheet four times, but those were pretty efficient matches.

Rochdale vs Barnsley: Prediction

A tight clash is ahead of us and this one is not easy to predict. The hosts are capable enough of remaining undefeated in this one and the most realistic outcome in this encounter would be a draw.

Both sides have been involved in high scoring matches lately in which both sides were capable of scoring at least once. This match should be another efficient one for both sides and the nets shouldn’t remain still.
