On March 21, Oakwell (Barnsley) will host the match of the 26th round of the English League One, in which Barnsley will compete with Sheffield Wednesday. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team is still a “football elevator”, only with a proviso for a rather modest status: it “hangs” between the second and the third divisions of England. For example, “the Colliers” spent the previous season in the Championship in an absolutely ignominious way, being relegated ahead of schedule from the last place. As a result, even having gone into the lower division, the team had to search for its game for a long time. Nowadays, the club allows quite a protracted unsuccessful streak. The higher mentioned results were at the junction of December and January, when it was relegated from the cup tournament and was defeated a couple of times in the League One. Generally speaking, Michael Duff’s wards have been able to noticeably add in the game. They scored per three goals in the matches with Portsmouth and Plymouth at their home arena in March, confidently winning and gaining a foothold in the play-off zone. Wycombe conceded only one goal, but that was enough for the final victory.
The club had lost its “registration” in the Championship a year earlier. The task of returning there was given to Darren Moore, a young manager, who is considered to be one of the best football players in the history of Jamaica, in 2021. Briefly speaking, he did not achieve it from the first attempt. To be honest, “the Owls” were not bad – they lacked only a couple of victories. They finished in the 4th place and lost to Sunderland, which eventually climbed into the higher division, in the first round of the play-offs. Nevertheless, they decided to leave the coach, and he justifies such trust with brilliance. At least 2/3 of the matches have been won, especially since the beginning of winter. The previous rounds brought mostly pragmatic 1-0 scores with Charlton, Peterborough and Portsmouth. Apparently, the same plan was designed for the battle with Bolton, but, having scored a quick goal, the team conceded in response, which resulted in a 1-1 draw.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Being in the Championship, the clubs exchanged away victories in 2020/2021. It is curious that the trend continued in early autumn – Barnsley achieved an away 2-0 success.
Bookmakers consider the guests to be the favourite of the following battle, but it is more nominal. The opponents are quite equal, thus, we can bet on “both teams to score: yes” (odd: 1.83).
