Plymouth Argyle vs Barnsley Match Preview
Barnsley have been in the headlines for the wrong reasons over the last week, and will now aim to give their supporters a good-news story with victory away to Plymouth.
The Tykes were involved in a controversial contest at home to Fleetwood which they won 4-2, but it was what happened immediately afterwards that has been the subject of major media interest and resulted in an arrest on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence.
Nothing more should be said about the background to that for legal reasons, other than that Barnsley have lodged formal complaints with the English Football League and the Football Association regarding the alleged incident.
It has all been an unwanted distraction for Daniel Stendel’s promotion-chasing side, who are in a five-way scrap for two automatic promotion places from League One.
Plymouth, meanwhile, have their own very good reason to try and win this game for they are in the thick of the relegation battle which, with four rounds of fixtures remaining, still included half of the 24 clubs in this division.
As the stats above outline, the Pilgrims score plenty of goals at home and they could well dent Barnsley’s hopes of finishing in the top two by holding them to a draw.
