Barnsley vs Swansea Match Preview
Barnsley lost 5-1 at Preston in their last fixture before the international break a result that saw the sacking of manager Daniel Stendel. The German paid the price for a slow start to the season that saw them take just six points from their opening 11 and had the joint-worst defence in the division.
At Oakwell, the Tykes won on the opening day of the season (beating Fulham) but since then they are winless in five with three of these ending in defeat. Only Stoke (13) have conceded more goals than the 12 at their own place the Yorkshire side have shipped.
Swansea will be looking to bounce back from a shock 2-1 at home to Stoke just ahead of the international break. It means they dropped down to fourth having taken just five points from their last five Championship games.
Away from the Liberty Stadium, the Swans have been excellent this season going unbeaten in five having won three of these. The key to this has been the best road defence in the division having conceded just two goals.
The Welsh side are the most likely winners of this game but they look a little bit short to be backing given their recent form. Barnsley could be anything at the moment having sacked Daniel Stendel and (at the time of writing) had no replacement. Under 2.5 goals looks the best bet as caretaker managers often come in and work on tightening up defences while the Swans have conceded just two goals on their travels this campaign. This looks the main selection while an interest in under 1.5 goals also appeals on value grounds.
