Our prediction for this Championship match:
Oakwell will host Tuesday’s Championship game between Barnsley and Stoke City. The Tykes aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Derby County, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Potters. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Aaron Leya Iseka, Victor Adeboyejo, and Cauley Woodrow continue to miss out. Josh Benson could sneak into the starting XI this time out.
The Potters, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in all competitions ahead of the midweek clash. Both Harry Souttar and Abdallah Sima are sidelined with injuries, while Liam Moore is a major doubt after picking up a knock in a 1-0 loss to Blackpool. Ben Wilmot could replace Moore in the starting XI. Anyhow, we predict that the relegation-threatened hosts are going to take advantage of Stoke City’s poor form.
