THE KEY STATS

  • Barnsley have won just 1 of their last 6 Championship matches.
  • Middlesbrough have failed to win any of their last 7 Championship matches.
  • Both teams have scored in 11 of Barnsley's last 13 home Championship matches.
  • Middlesbrough have scored at least 2 goals in 4 of their last 5 away Championship matches.
  • Middlesbrough have conceded the first goal in their last 6 Championship matches.

THE PREDICTION

Barnsley gave themselves fresh hopes of survival after victory at Fulham last weekend. The win will have given the Tykes a huge boost in confidence and with home advantage against a Middlesbrough side winless in seven Championship matches, they could make it two victories on the bounce here.
