Barnsley vs Burton Albion Betting Tips: Form Guide

Barnsley Look To Extend Home Run

Daniel Stendel’s Barnsley team lost their first league match of 2018/19 last weekend, when they were beaten 1-0 away at Coventry City. The Reds are unbeaten at home in the league so far this season, and Stendel told the media this week that he expects Burton to turn up and try and frustrate his team. The Barnsley boss believes that his team have to get used to that now, and find ways to create chances against teams who are looking to be organised and defensively resilient at Oakwell. The Reds have now gone eight games unbeaten in the league at home, with four of those games being won and four drawn. They have scored 16 goals in those eight games, and only failed to score in one.

If you’re looking for Barnsley vs Burton Albion betting tips for today, it could be worth keeping an eye on Barnsley striker Kieffer Moore. He has been directly involved in seven of his team’s last nine goals, scoring six goals and providing one assist.

The Tykes could have Lloyd Isgrove back in action this weekend. The Welshman has recovered from a muscle strain.

Brewers Need To Find Away Form

Burton Albion climbed up the League One table last week, thanks to a fine victory over Sunderland. The Brewers beat the Black Cats 2-1 at the Pirelli Stadium, and Nigel Clough’s team will be looking to build on that victory at Barnsley on Saturday. The Tykes were relegated from the Championship last season alongside Burton, so this game will be a renewal of rivalries between the teams.

Burton do not have a particularly good record against Barnsley, though. The Brewers have won just one of their last seven meetings with the South Yorkshire side in all competitions. The Midlanders have lost three and drawn three of those games.

The Brewers are also yet to win away from home in 2018/19. They have won one, lost seven and drawn two of their last 10 away games in the league. This season, they have drawn once away from home, and lost three times.

The Burton defence is likely to be depleted this weekend too. Damien McCrory may feature, though a tight hamstring saw him withdrawn from the action early against Sunderland. John Brayford and Jake Buxton are both unlikely to feature, though Brayford has returned to training recently.

Barnsley vs Burton Albion Preview: Recent Meetings

These two sides played against each other twice in the Championship last season. The first game was at Burton’s Pirelli Stadium in October, 2017. The Tykes won the game 4-2. Lloyd Isgrove, Brad Potts, Joe Williams and Harvey Barnes scored for the South Yorkshire side. Burton’s goals were provided by Matty Lund and Lloyd Dyer.

The last time Burton travelled to Barnsley, in the Championship last season, they won 2-1. That victory was their first win at Oakwell. They had lost two and drawn one of their previous games in Barnsley.  Jamie Allen scored for the Brewers in the game’s opening minute. Jacob Davenport added a second for the Brewers in the fourth minute of injury time at the end of the first half. Kieffer Moore’s 75th minute strike for the Reds proved to be just a consolation goal.

Barnsley vs Burton Albion Prediction: Comfortable Home Win

Given Barnsley’s strong home record in recent times, and Burton’s weakness away from their own turf, our prediction is that the Tykes will win this game pretty comfortably. A 2-0 scoreline looks likely to us. Barnsley are among the contenders for promotion to the Championship this season, and will want to get back to winning ways in front of their own fans, after last week’s first loss of the season away at Coventry. Backing Kieffer Moore to score for the Tykes would also be a good bet.
