Barnsley to Win

Barnsley made it 4 consecutive home wins on Tuesday night when achieving an easy 3-1 victory vs Portsmouth. This extended the impressive unbeaten run to 9 (W7 D2) and keeps Barnsley firmly in the race for a top-2 finish and direct promotion. At the same time, Plymouth had shown insecurity on the road lately and they lost 2 of their last 3 away matches. That’s why our first Barnsley vs Plymouth prediction is for a home win.

Over 1.5 Barnsley Goals

Our second Barnsley vs Plymouth prediction is that the hosts would score at least 2 goals. We think this is very likely considering Barnsley scored 2 or more in all of their last 4 home games. Plymouth have been struggling defensively of late, with no clean sheet in their last 4 away matches, and they also conceded 5 goals in their last trip (2-5 defeat vs Peterborough).

BTTS

Both Barnsley and Plymouth are among the most serious promotion candidates for a reason. Both teams score goals with ease. That’s why our final Barnsley vs Plymouth prediction is for both sides to find the back of the net.

Barnsley saw 3 of their last 4 home league games producing a BTTS finish. Very similar stat for Plymouth with 3 of their last 4 away games ending without a clean sheet.

Barnsley vs Plymouth Lineups and Team News

Barnsley

Barnsley dominated every aspect of their home match against Portsmouth on Tuesday and in end the they were comfortable 3-1 winners. The forward actions impressed again and Barnsley had been scoring at home with great ease lately.

The options for rotation remain limited with 6 long-term absentees still filling the rehabilitation room. Among them is the main goalkeeper Collins. In his absence, Isted is grabbing his chance well and his displays in recent rounds had been solid.

Plymouth

Plymouth were seriously tested when hosting another top 6 rival Derby on Tuesday night. Argyle trailed at halftime but then with a bit of luck managed to steal a hard-fought 2-1 win. Plymouth remain in the top 2, but if they want a direct promotion they can’t afford mistakes.

Fit-again Scarr could come into contention for the first time in a month. Another recently injured defender Grant also trains again. However, he might not be rushed back just yet. The main goalie Collins is out for the season, with the very useful midfielder Randall and backup striker Cosgrove also sidelined.
