Coventry City vs Barnsley Betting Tips: Form Guide

City With Issues In Defence And Attack

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has overseen something of a mixed start to the 2018/19 campaign for his team. The Sky Blues currently sit in 12th place in the League One table, having taken seven points from their eight league games so far. City  have won two games, lost two games and drawn three. Tellingly, if you are looking for Coventry City vs Barnsley betting tips for today, they also have a goal difference of minus two, which suggests there are problems in defence for Robins to try and sort out. They have scored just five goals too, so there are issues when it comes to piercing the opposition defence too.

Last time out, though, City gave their campaign a real boost, winning 2-1 away at Oxford United. An own goal and a Connor Chaplin penalty, both in the second half, allowed them to claim victory. That result also meant that City enjoyed a touch of revenge over Oxford, who had knocked them out of the League Cup earlier this season. City will need to do more than rely on own goals and penalties, though, if they are serious about winning more games.

Barnsley Building Momentum

Barnsley currently sit in third place in League One, having enjoyed a good start to the 2018/19 season. Manager Daniel Stendel will be pleased with his team’s progress so far. The Reds have taken 15 points from their seven games, having acquired that tally thanks to four wins and three draws. The zero in the defeats column of the league ladder is a real indication that this Barnsley team is well-equipped for promotion this year.

Last weekend, Barnsley were held 1-1 at home by Walsall. An own goal had put the Reds into a 55th minute lead, but they were forced to settle for a point after Andy Cook scored with just two minutes of normal time remaining to level matters up. Stendel will be a little concerned that his side succumbed to late pressure, and will want to see more ruthlessness this weekend at Coventry.

Barnsley are currently unbeaten in six games, with their last defeat in any competition having been the 3-1 defeat away at Blackpool in the first round of the League Cup. Since then they have drawn three league games, won two league games and beaten Oldham in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Coventry City vs Barnsley Preview: Recent Meetings

These two sides last met in League One in the 2015/16 season. The first game, on November 23, 2015, was at the Ricoh Arena, and was won 4-3 by Coventry. Goals from Ryan Kent and Adam Armstrong saw City race into a 2-0 lead by the 18 minute mark. Alfie Mawson pulled a goal back for the Reds three minutes after half-time, but Adam Armstrong restored the home side’s two-goal lead in the 52nd minute. Barnsley then scored through Josh Scowen two minutes later. A second goal from Armstrong and one from Joe Cole had Coventry 4-2 in the lead. A Scowen penalty in injury time offered some consolation for Barnsley.

The second game that season was at Oakwell in March. Barnsley got some revenge for the earlier defeat, winning 2-0. The goals were scored by Marc Roberts in the first half, and Ashley Fletcher in the second.

Coventry City vs Barnsley Prediction: Comfortable Away Win

The pressure is on the home side to win this game. Mark Robins and his team need to start winning games if they want to escape a season of mid-table mediocrity or, even worse, a relegation battle. Taking the scalp of one of the early season pace setters in League One would certainly boost the spirits of everyone associated with the club. For their part, Barnsley need to keep the momentum going. The difference between them and City is that the Reds know how to win games, even when under pressure. If your looking for Coventry City vs Barnsley betting tips for today, then our prediction is that Barnsley will win the game 2-0.
