THE PREDICTION

After two successive Championship games without victory, Barnsley got back to winning ways last time out after a crucial 1-2 triumph away at Luton to keep themselves safely inside the playoff places. The key now for the Tykes is whether they can put together another winning run and handle the pressure that keeping hold of a top six spot brings. Middlesbrough managed to restrict Watford to a 1-1 draw in their most recent game and will adopt a similar strategy in this one as they attempt to bully Barnsley’s young side. Neil Warnock’s men have struggled away from home recently however, having lost their last three league games on the road and Barnsley are a strong enough team to take advantage and overwhelm the Teesiders with their energy and relentless pressing, so consider the hosts draw no bet.
