Wycombe to Win

Wycombe enter this match in desperate need of points if they are to make a late push towards the playoff positions. Certainly, the team’s motivation is higher than that of Barnsley, who seem to have their top-6 position sort of secure right now. This is why our first Wycombe vs Barnsley prediction is for the hosts to grab the win.

Wycombe boast a strong home record all season (W10 D4 L4) and back in August they easily beat Barnsley 3-0 away from home.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our second Wycombe vs Barnsley prediction is that this matchup between 2 very potent attacks will produce at least 3 total goals. All of the last 4 H2H clashes had 3 goals or more. So did 5 of Barnsley’s last 6 league games, so we think this could easily happen again.

Over 0.5 Wycombe First Half Goals

Our final Wycombe vs Barnsley prediction is undoubtedly the safest betting tip. We firmly believe that Wycombe will score at least 1 goal in the first half. There had been at least 1 goal in the first half in all of Wycombe’s last 13 matches. Wycombe themselves have scored in the first half in all of their last 5 home league games. Wycombe are actually 1 of only 4 teams in the division to score the majority of their goals in the first half – 56%.

Wycombe vs Barnsley Lineups and Other News

Wycombe

Wycombe beat Bristol Rovers 2-0 away on Tuesday to resurrect their playoff hopes. The display was solid and the returning from injury star playmaker Scowen immediately improved the forward actions.

Wycombe might consider changes to their lineup due to the quick turnaround. Both midfielders Wheeler and Freeman were sick in midweek but they could be options again now. Striker Vokes also faces a late fitness test due to a nasty bruise. Still missing 4 players. Among them are the important defenders Obita and Tafazolli.

Barnsley

Barnsley were a bit fortunate to beat Plymouth 3-0 last weekend. Not that the display was bad, just the visitors created lots of chances and it was a small miracle that Barnsley kept a clean sheet. Still, the recent 8-game unbeaten run cemented Barnsley’s playoff position and they are high on confidence right now.

The gaffer might keep the starting XI unchanged. He has all his regulars and important players available anyway. Only 4 fringe players continue to nurse injuries so Barnsley are spoiled for choice right now.
