Barnsley vs Charlton Match Preview
Although both of these two teams have wins on the board, two in the case of Charlton, this is somewhat of an early season relegation battle. Before a ball was kicked these two were the two favourites for relegation back down to League One, where they have only just joined this league from.
However, both have offered positives early in the season, with Charlton winning both of their two games so far and Barnsley putting in a strong performance on the opening day to be fancied club Fulham. Both would love to build on their starts here, with what could turn out to be three crucial points at stake in this one.
On Tuesday night a 3-0 home cup defeat against Carlisle ended Barnsley’s magnificent home run. They had gone 32 games unbeaten at home in all competitions in regular time prior to that game, a run which was a vital reason why they achieved promotion and one that was their main hope of staying alive in the Championship this season.
They can’t dwell on that too much though, and need to go back to their 1-0 victory over Fulham at the start of the season when they dominated one of the more fancied teams in this league. If Barnsley bring that kind of performance to the table then just like last season in League One, not many clubs will leave Oakwell with anything.
Charlton couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season with two wins from two games. These are vital point despite it being August, and they will no doubt be looking to pick up some more at Oakwell, despite knowing what a tough place it is to play after being beaten here in League One last season.
The home side will be looking for a reaction to Tuesday’s cup defeat and we think they will get it. They were too impressive to ignore against Fulham on the opening day, with an exceptional defensive performance leading the way for them and more of the same would be no surprise here.
