Fleetwood vs Barnsley – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Barnsley are right in the mix at the top end of the table. Can they win here to ensure they stay there? Find out with our Fleetwood vs Barnsley preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Barnsley to win

We begin our tips by backing an away win. Barnsley have been in really good form of late with no defeats in their last five matches and, more notably, four wins in that period. Fleetwood meanwhile whilst no pushovers have only managed to win one of their last five games. You can wind that forwards to because they’ve not won any of their past five at home either. Barnsley meanwhile won each of their previous two away games and have won each of their last three head to heads with Fleetwood.

Both teams to score

Here we back both teams to score in this match. Fleetwood and Barnsley have both scored in each of their last five games, which serves as proof they don’t struggle to find the net. On top of that, four of the last five head to head matches have ended with goals at both ends. Given the odds on offer, backing ‘yes’ is the best value wager.

James Norwood to score

Our last tip for today sees us backing Barnsley striker James Norwood to score. He made a relatively slow start to life at Barnsley after signing as a free agent in the summer but he’s started to find his groove now and has amassed three goals in his last four games – including netting in each of his last two. An additional factor to us backing Norwood to score comes from who he’ll be up against in the Fleetwood backline, Toto Nsiala. The duo were teammates at Ipswich last season and they’re highly likely to slog it out as they come face to face again here.

Fleetwood vs Barnsley: Team News

Fleetwood

Fleetwood are doing okay so far this season even if wins are proving hard to come by. They’d have taken a midtable position at this stage though and a win over Barnsley would push them into the top half of the table, which is a nice incentive to have ahead of a home game that is expected to attract a big crowd. Toto Nsiala, who plays at centre back, will be an important figure in this match.

Barnsley

Barnsley were tipped to be up the top of the table this season and, so far, they’re not disappointing as they sit up in fifth. This match is a winnable one for them too and, due to fixtures around them, three points would guarantee they close the four little gap that’s opened between them and the four sides ahead of them. As for key players, it’s all about the sharp end of the pitch – James Norwood and Devante Cole have seven goals between them this season and both scored last time out.
