Bristol Rovers vs Barnsley Match Preview
Barnsley are backed to enjoy a promotion party on their trip to Bristol, sealing an immediate return to the Championship in manager Daniel Stendel’s first season at the club.
The Tykes may already be up even before this last match of the season if Portsmouth and Sunderland have both failed to win on Tuesday (results not known at the time of writing).
But the likelihood is that Barnsley will still need three points at the Memorial Stadium to be absolutely sure of regaining their place in the second tier, with Stendel contributing further to the recent run of success enjoyed by German coaches who are plying their trade in England.
The League One title could even be captured by the South Yorkshire club, who have caught long-time leaders Luton on 91 points thanks to four straight wins whereas the Hatters have stumbled in sight of the winning line and made hard work of clinching their own promotion.
Rovers, meanwhile, have secured safety from relegation having improved significantly since Graham Coughlan was appointed as their manager a couple of weeks before Christmas.
The Pirates have won only five of their 22 league games at home, however, and current form suggests Barnsley will celebrate promotion in style with another victory.
