Portsmouth vs Barnsley Match Preview

Barnsley have moved ahead of Portsmouth in the race for an automatic promotion place in League One and their superior recent form makes them the better bet at Fratton Park.

Luton have kicked clear at the top of the table and established themselves as red-hot favourites for the title, but any one of Barnsley, Portsmouth and Sunderland could also go up without having to resort to the play-offs.

Portsmouth had looked to be the best team in the English third tier this season up to the end of 2018, but going into Tuesday’s home match against Bristol Rovers (result not known at the time of writing) they had not won in the league since New Year’s Day.

Pompey had dropped to third position as a result, overtaken by Barnsley who had gained 19 points from the last 21 available before their midweek fixture at home to Burton Albion.

Not even a 3-0 lead away to Southend on Saturday was enough to put Portsmouth across the winning line because they ended up with a 3-3 draw as they conceded a Simon Cox hat-trick.

Confidence has to be much higher in the Barnsley ranks just now and they are scoring plenty of goals, with on-loan Fulham striker Cauley Woodrow in particularly good order, and the Tykes are backed to achieve what could be a priceless victory in the promotion battle.
