Our match prediction:
Following a 1-0 loss to Huddersfield Town, Wolverhampton played out a 1-1 draw with Burton Albion in their last league match. The Wolves are eager to return to winning ways and they are considered favourites to emerge triumphant in Tuesday’s football clash against Barnsley. Over the years Wolverhampton have turned their Molineux Stadium into a real fortress and it has to be noted that the Wolves are on a ten-game unbeaten run at home ground in the Championship. Paul Heckingbottom’s charges have been producing fine performances at the start of the season, but we predict that Wolverhampton are going to put an end to the team’s two-game winning run. It has to be noted that in their last meeting at Molineux Stadium Wolverhampton recorded a 3-1 win over Barnsley, with the likes of Ward, Ebanks-Blake and Edwards scoring for the Wolves back then. Cywka scored a consolation goal for the Tykes.
Highligted Player (Danny Bath):
At the age of 10 Daniel Danny Batth joined Wolverhampton football academy. He was soon named the captain of the Wolves youth team and nobody was surprised when he made his debut for the senior team. The defender, who was born on 21 September, 1990 scored nine goals in 140 league appearances for Wolverhampton, but it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Colchester United, Sheffield United and their bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday on loan as well. Danny Batth won the Football League One with Wolverhampton in the 2013/2014 season and, speaking of his individual awards, he was named Wolves Young Professional of the Year in the 2009/2010 campaign. Batth book his place in the 2013/2014 PFA League One Team of the Year as well. The 191-cm-tall centre back scored his first professional goal on 20 February in Colchester United’s 1-0 victory over Oldham Athletic. Daniel Batth was born in Brierley Hill, West Midlands and he is the only footballer to play in all 46 matches for Wolves in the 2013/2014 season.
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.
