Middlesbrough vs Barnsley Match Preview

Middlesbrough drew 2-2 with Hull last time out and having taken a two-goal lead in just 26 minutes will have been disappointed to have a player sent-off in the 37th minute.  It was their second successive draw and fourth in their last five for a side winless in ten.

At the Riverside, Boro are five matches without a victory though three of the last four here have finished all-square.  The 2-2 draw here at the weekend was only the second time in the last eight here that a game has gone over 2.5 goals.

Barnsley made it back-to-back defeats and three in their last four going down 3-2 away to Blackburn at the weekend.  Gerhard Struber is the man in the dugout and he will be looking for not just his first win at the club but his sides first since opening day.

Away from Oakwell, the Tykes have played eight and managed just two points though one of those did come at West Brom.  They have netted in each of their last four on the road with Cauley Woodrow grabbing three in three on his travels.

The odds have Middlesbrough as favourites to win the game and while it is hard to argue with this it is also hard to get with the Teesiders who are winless in ten.  The goals market is going on the fact that both teams were among the goals at the weekend but at those odds it might be worth taking the game to go under.  The hosts will have identified this game as a crucial one while Struber in the visitors dugout will surely have a few defensive ideas up his sleeve having witnessed some shambolic defending from the Tykes at the weekend.  Under 2.5 goals is the main bet while a smaller stakes interest on under 1.5 looks sensible in this vital game at the bottom.
