Fleetwood Town vs Barnsley Betting Tips: Form Guide

Fleetwood looking to end winless run

Fleetwood are aspiring to a bright start to life under new manager Joey Barton. They started the new season with a 1-0 home defeat to Wimbledon. However, that result was followed by a seven-game unbeaten run in the league. Cod Army registered three wins and four draws during that run. Their impressive came to end last week as they lost 1-0 at Southend last week. Fleetwood ended the game with ten men as James Wallace was shown his second yellow card in the injury-time. Their loss at Southend was preceded by back-to-back draws, so Fleetwood are winless in three games.

Cod Army have been underwhelming at home this season, and hence, we doubt their ability to secure all three points against Barnsley. The hosts have registered just one win in their four home games this season. The only positive result came against Bradford, who are currently struggling in the drop zone. However, they look capable of managing a draw in this game.

Fleetwood have looked average on the scoring front as they have managed to find the net on 13 occasions in their nine games.

Ched Evans is their top scorer with five goals in eight starts this season. Paddy Madden has ably supported his striking striker with three goals. We expect both to start against the Tykes.

Craig Morgan and Conor McAleny should return for the hosts, but Wallace is suspended.

Barnsley eye a top-six spot

Barnsley find themselves in League One following their relegation in the summer. They are obvious candidates for promotion, and they have made an above-average start to their season.

The Tykes were not involved in action last week as their home game against Burton Albion was postponed. Hence, they will play against Fleetwood following a two-week break from football. In their last game, they lost 1-0 at recently-promoted Coventry. The defeat to Sky Blues was Barnsley’s first in the league this season, but a huge disappointment. It was also their only defeat in four games on the road. Prior to the defeat to Coventry, Barnsley had picked up seven points from their three home games scoring eight goals in the process.

Ahead of their trip to Highbury, the visitors find themselves in the seventh spot with 15 points. They are only a couple of points outside top-six despite playing a game less than their direct rivals.

They have fared better than their opponents on the scoring front as they have scored 15 goals in their eight games. Kieffer Moore has been the main goal-scorer for the Tykes, and the English forward has netted six goals in eight starts. They have been equally efficient at the back and have conceded only five times this season.

The visitors are without the services of Ezekiel Fryers and Cauley Woodrow while Brad Potts is a doubt for this game. Following are some more statistics highlight recent forms in Fleetwood Town vs Barnsley best odds.

Fleetwood Town vs Barnsley Preview: Recent Meetings

These two sides recently faced each other on four occasions in League One from 2014 to 2016. Cod Army are slightly ahead in the head-to-head record as they have two wins while Barnsley have just one.

Three of four games ended in away games while one game resulted in a draw. In the 2015-16 season, Barnsley won the corresponding fixture 2-0, but they lost their home game 1-0.

Three of these four meetings have ended with under 2.5 goals. Hence, a low-scoring affair is probable in Fleetwood Town vs Barnsley prediction.

Fleetwood Town vs Barnsley Prediction: Both to Score

Fleetwood Town finished 14th in League One last season. They have made a lot of progress in recent years, and it was their fourth consecutive season at this tier. Cod Army are aiming for a crack at playoff spots this season under Barton.

The hosts have displayed some positive signs, but it is too early to judge their credentials. As things stand, they find themselves in the tenth spot, four points behind the top-six. A game against Barnsley is a tough challenge, but Fleetwood would sense an opportunity for a win considering Tykes lost at 13th-placed Coventry in their last game.

Barnsley had made a decent start to their promotion challenge until they slipped up at Coventry. They still remain in the touching distance of the top-six, and a win on Saturday would most probably push them into playoff spots. They have been decent on the road too as they have won two of their four away games. Hence, it’s a very tough game to call as both sides are coming on the back of defeats. Barnsley are the stronger side on paper, and they are strong favourites to win. However, we see value in a draw in this game.
