THE PREDICTION

Barnsley scrambled an unlikely point at the weekend after a 2-2 draw at home to league leaders Bristol City, thanks to a penalty scored 12 minutes into second half stoppage time due to an injury. Stoke on the other hand pulled off a near perfect away performance, beating Luton 0-2 at Kenilworth Road. However, the Potters have had their issues at home this season picking up just one point from a possible nine. That is expected to change here however, as Michael O’Neill’s men should have more than enough firepower to brush aside the Tykes and chalk up a second successive Championship victory.
