Doncaster vs Barnsley Match Preview
Barnsley travel to Doncaster for their Matchday 38 clash sitting five points behind the League One pace-setters Luton, boasting a 12-match unbeaten streak across competitions since early January – looking rock-solid at the back and basing success on such performances.
Indeed, Tykes have kept clean sheets in all of the last five outings as they held off Burton Albion (0-0), Portsmouth (0-0), Sunderland (0-0) and beat Southend (0-3) as well as Accrington Stanley (2-0). Daniel Stendel will now want them to build on it and we do see them proving as a tough nut at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Doncaster come into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw earned at Blackpool and this was their third point earned in five outings, as they also held off Scunthorpe (1-1) and Charlton Athletic (1-1) but suffered losses to Shrewsbury (2-0) and AFC Wimbledon ( 2-0) along the way.
Rovers have proven themselves a very tough side to beat in front of the home fans, though, and suffered just one loss in 12 outings across competitions – where Crystal Palace knocked them out of FA Cup with a 0-2 win midway through February. They will now want to keep up such a streak, though, and we expect them just as confident.
We thus expect another narrow contest between the sides and we’ll go for them to share the spoils in South Yorkshire, where a Draw caught the eye of many in the know already at 5/2 with bet365.
With that in mind, we feel we won’t see many goals and both sides come into the match on the back of a couple of solid defensive performances, which feels like further evidence as we also go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 17/20 with Paddy Power.
