THE TEAM NEWS

BARNSLEY

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Sahin-Radlinger; Sibbick, Andersen, Bambo Diaby, Williams; McGeehan, Mowatt; Thomas, Chaplin, Wilks; Woodrow

Unavailable: Dougall (Injured), Green (Injured), Brown (Injured)

Doubtful:

  • Last season’s League 1 runners-up Barnsley return to the Championship at the first attempt and determined not to face relegation from this league for a third time in seven years.
  • The Tykes have an in-vogue German manager in Daniel Stendel who will face a massive test to keep his side up this year in what looks to be yet another congested bottom third of the Championship table.
  • Stendel’s side went unbeaten in League 1 at home last season, losing just the once in all competitions at Oakwell, and they will need to fight for every point in front of their fans if they are to survive.

FULHAM

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Bettinelli; Christie, Ream, Mawson, Bryan; Johansen, McDonald, Cairney; Knockaert, Mitrovic, Cavaleiro

Unavailable: R. Sessegnon (Injured)

Doubtful:

  • Scott Parker looked to have found some rhythm with his misfiring Fulham side once the pressure was taken off at the end of last season’s Premier League campaign and the Cottagers are one of the favourites for promotion this year.
  • Fulham have made excellent business in keeping and committing Aleksandar Mitrovic to a new five-year contract with the young Serb surely one of the early contenders for Championship top-scorer this season.
  • After their spending spree backfired last season, the Cottagers have offloaded midfielders Jean Michael Seri and Andrea Zambo Anguissa on loan in attempts to form a squad capable of navigating the Championship’s brutality.

BETTING ANALYSIS

Fulham found their form in the Premier League far too late but with Scott Parker at the helm and Aleksandar Mitrovic signing a new contract they have a real chance at bouncing back. Newly promoted Barnsley know they are in for a relagation fight this year and they could be the Serb’s first victim.

BETTING TIP: (Aleksandar Mitrovic) Anytime goal scorer
