Barnsley vs Sunderland Match Preview
Barnsley made it back-to-back victories and stretched their unbeaten league run to 16 with a 2-0 defeat of Accrington last time out. It means they sit in second four above their opponents here (who have a game in hand) and three behind leaders Luton.
At Oakwell, the Tykes have won seven of their last eight and not lost in the league here this season. They have the best home defensive record in the division having conceded just ten times from 18 games.
Sunderland were involved in a dramatic end to their game at Wycombe where they netted late to rescue a point before three players were dismissed in stoppage time. It stretched their unbeaten run to 14 but a tendency to draw too many (eight of these) has kept them out of the top two.
Away from the Stadium of Light, the Black Cats have lost just two times this campaign and none of their last six. Four of their last five on their travels have finished all-square and these all ended 1-1.
Given their strong home form it is no shock to see the Yorkshire side leading the betting though given the gap is just four points (and the Wearsiders have a game in hand) then I think there is little to choose between the pair. I like the draw here as has happened in four of the last five on the road for the Black Cats and two of four all grounds for the hosts.
If the game ends in a draw then it will likely end in a score draw given the firepower at the disposal of both sides so take the game to finish all-square and yes in the both teams to score market.
