Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Oakwell pits together Barnsley and Coventry City. The Tykes came from behind to share the spoils with Cardiff City in their opener, with the team totally deserving to grab one point from the Cardiff City Stadium clash. Barnsley are now on a quest to record their first win of the season, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Sky Blues. You should bear in mind that the Tykes registered 12 wins at home ground last term.
Both Andersen and Kane have been struggling with injuries of late. Coventry, on the other hand, did well to beat Nottingham Forest in the opening match of the season, with Kyle McFadzean scoring the winner in the 6th minute of the stoppage time. Anyhow, Mark Robins’ troops will have a big fish to fry in the Oakwell clash as they are not regarded as good travelers. All Eccles, Godden, and Kelly are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Patrick Schmidt):
Patrick Schmidt is an Austria international who plays for Championship club Barnsley as a forward. Born in Eisenstadt, Austria on July 22, 1998 Schmidt began his senior career at Admira Wacker. After making 46 appearances for Admira Wacker II, the 179-cm tall striker started playing for the first-team in the 2016/2017 Austrian Bundesliga season.
Three years later Patrick Schmidt decided to take a step forward in his football career as he signed a four-year deal with Barnsley. The full-of-pace forward scored eight goals in the 2018/2019 season for Admira and he is widely expected to shine with the Tykes in the 2019/2020 Championship campaign. It has to be noted that Schmidt played for Austria U16, U17, U18 and U19 teams.
The Barnsley attacker currently represents Austria U21 team in international matches. His main position is centre-forward, but he is used as both left and right winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Coventry):
Nicknamed the Sky Blues, Coventry City are an English football club that compete in the League One. Coventry City, who were founded on August 13, 1883 as Singers FC, wear sky blue kit when playing on home soil, whilst their away colour is white.
Aston Villa and Leicester City are considered the club’s main rivals, but they have rivalry with fellow West Midlands clubs Wallsall and Burton Albion as well. Coventry City have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to go all the way in the FA Cup in the 1986/1987 season, with the team beat Charlton Athletic in the two-legged final. They share stadium with Birmingham City, with both clubs playing their home games at St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Built in December, 1906, St. Andrew’s Stadium can hold up to 29,409 spectators. Dion Dublin is one of the most famous Coventry City players, with the legendary centre-forward scoring 61 goals in 145 appearances for the club in the league.
