Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Oakwell pits together Barnsley and Port Vale, the two teams who are almost level on points in the standings ahead of Matchday 10. The Tykes aim to build on a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Both Josh Benson and Nicky Cadden are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Valiants, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Burton, losing to Portsmouth, while sharing the spoils with Cheltenham. Barnsley and Port Vale seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. James Wilson should be the only absentee in the away side.
Highlighted Player (David Amoo):
David Amoo is a professional football player who was born in Southwark, London, England on April 13, 1991. Amoo spent his youth career at the likes of Millwall and Liverpool, but nowadays he plays for League Two side Port Vale.
It has to be noted that the pacey winger played for the likes of Milton Keynes Dons (loan), Hull City (loan), Bury (loan), Preston, Tranmere Rovers, Carlisle United, Patrick Thistle, and Cambridge United as well before joining the Valiants in the summer of 2019. David Amoo made his League Two debut with Port Vale on August 3, 2019, in a 1-1 draw with Colchester United.
He scored his first goal for the Valiants in a 1-1 draw with Northampton Town seven days later. His primary position is a right winger, but he is often used as both left winger and second striker. David Amoo has dual citizenship (England/Nigeria).
Highlighted Team (Port Vale):
Nicknamed the Valiants, Port Vale are a professional club that compete in the League Two. Port Vale welcome their rivals at Vale Park, and they wear white and black kit when playing in front of home fans. Yellow, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Valiants’ home ground, which was built in 1950, can hold up to 49,768 people. Championship side Stoke City are seen as one of the club’s fiercest rivals, but their rivalry is pretty healthy. The two teams first met on December 2, 1882, with the Potters emerging triumphant (1-0).
The Valiants maintain a rivalry with fellow League 2 club Crewe Alexandra as well. Speaking of the club’s titles, it has to be noted that Port Vale have won Football League Trophy on two occasions (1993, 2001). A 9-1 win over Chesterfield from September 24, 1932 is the club’s biggest triumph.
