THE PREDICTION

One team in good form faces another side who have found some form as Barnsley host Stoke. The Tykes are unbeaten in their last five Championship matches, but will have to work hard to keep that run going vs a Stoke side who have won their last two games without conceding a goal. With the Potters seemingly back to their defensive best under the stewardship of Michael O’Neill, they will set up to make themselves very hard for Barnsley to breach, whilst relying on the likes of mercurial midfielder Nick Powell to come up with some magic at the other end. However, Barnsley with their back three are very hard to score against with three clean sheets from four league matches. This may well lead to both teams drawing a blank in this one and each being forced to settle for a point apiece.
