Blackburn vs Barnsley Match Preview

Blackburn lost 2-1 at Leeds in their last game before the international break a third loss from the last four in the Championship.  They sit 18th in the table and after a good start have taken just five points in their last eight.

At Ewood Park, Rovers have been decent with three victories, three draws and just two defeats from eight games.  They are unbeaten in their last three in front of their own fans but have taken all three points from just one of four.

Barnsley lost 4-2 at home to Stoke ahead of the international break meaning they went into the two-week gap bottom of the table on just nine points.  They are still (at time of writing) yet to appoint a manager and whoever takes over (Gerhard Streber was strong favourite at time of publication) will inherit a side winless since the opening day.

Away from Oakwell, the Tykes have struggled this season failing to win any of the seven they have played with five of these ending in defeat.  No side in the division has scored a lower amount of league goals than the four they have netted.

Bookmakers make Blackburn strong favourites to win this game but it is hard to trust a side at such short odds with just one win in their last four here.  Barnsley are winless since the opening day so it is hard to be taking Rovers on with them.

A better angle of attack is to take the game to be level going into the break as has happened in four of seven the Tykes have played on the road and four of eight the Lancashire outfit have played at home.  You can expand the price out by taking a bet on the half-time correct score at 0-0.
