Our football match prediction:
Norwich City will be looking to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Championship when they square off against Barnsley at their Carrow Road. With only three points separating the two teams in the standings, a close encounter is widely expected, but we predict that both sides will go for a win in Saturday’s football match. Unlike previous seasons, Norwich City have been struggling in front of home fans this term and you should know that they failed to win previous home games in the league. Barnsley proved their worth in back-to-back wins over the likes of Burton Albion and Birmingham City, but they do not want to stop now. The Tykes aim to keep on climbing the standings and seeing that they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we are positive that both teams will find the net in the Carrow Road clash.

Highlighted Team (Barnsley):
Barnsley are an English club nicknamed the Tykes. The club was founded in 1887 and it has to be noted that they spend more seasons in the Championship than any other club in the history. The Tykes played in the Sheffield and District League from 1890, but in 1895 they were part of the Midland League. Barnsley play their home games at Oakwell, the stadium that was built in 1887. The capacity of the stadium is 23,009 and it was opened back in 1888, just one year after the club’s foundation. The Tykes made it to the FA Cup final in 1910, but Newcastle United proved to be a big catch for the Oakwell outfit in the title game. Nonetheless, Barnsley won the FA Cup trophy in 1912 and that is considered the club’s biggest success. Barnsley defeated West Bromwich Albion in the two-legged tie (0-0, 1-0) to clinch the prestigious trophy for the first and only time in their history.
