Barnsley are an English club nicknamed the Tykes. The Tykes played in the Sheffield and District League from 1890, but in 1895 they were part of the Midland League. 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. Barnsley play their home games at Oakwell, the stadium that was built in 1887.

Barnsleys average of 1.47 points per game at Oakwell is less than theyve managed on their travels and they have already suffered 5 home defeats in the Championship this term, which is plenty given they are riding high in 8th place.Theyve conceded a worrying 1.73 goals per game at Oakwell and with some of their best attacking players having now gone, they really need to tighten up at the back. Even with the likes of Hourihane and Winnall, who have departed the club, their home record hasnt been that impressive, with some of their most convincing performances coming on the road.

Chris Maxwell made 110 appearances in the league for the Trawlermen and on May 16, 2016 he signed a three-year deal with Championship side Preston North End. During the 2008/2009 season he spent six months on loan at Welsh club Connahs Quay Nomads and in 2012 he joined Fleetwood Town. You should know that he managed to keep clean sheets in 38 appearances for the Lilywhites in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.

Prior to their trip to South Wales, theyd only lost 1 of their previous 9 away games in the league, winning 4 of them. Their away record is quite strong with 5 wins and 5 defeats on the road. This feels like it could be a good time to be going to Oakwell, given the recent departures and given Barnsley have only won 3 of their last 13 at home in all competitions.

They did lose last time out at Cardiff but have previously responded well to setbacks such as that. Given they lost 5 of their opening 6 league games, theyve done really well to recover into a top half position and they could go above Barnsley with victory here. Here they face a Preston side that has been very tough to beat over the past few months. Theyve only lost 4 of their last 21 games in the Championship. They havent lost back-to-back games in the league since the opening month of the season.

The team can reach the play-offs this round if the other results are in their favour and will be looking to do their own part. Barnsley are out of form and surely they will manage to get out of this drop but it will hardly be against a team pushing for top 6 looking in form. Preston have failed to win their last game and will be determined to get back on track.

Barnsley vs Preston Stats

Their attack is in a very bad shape right now and we dont think they will be able to score in this game against Barnsley. Preston lost 4 of their last 5 matches before this game with Barnsley.The attacking skills of Preston are very bad, they couldnt win at least one game from the last 5 they played. Preston is ranked on the 11th place in the standings with 62 points, 64 goals scored and 63 goals received in the last 46 leaguegames. They have failed to win 16 of their last 46 matches in English League Championship.In their last match they lost against Wolves.

The Tykes have been struggling to find their form of late and, as a result, their Championship status is in great danger. Preston are only two points behind top six and we predict they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesdays football match against Barnsley. Paul Heckingbottoms men are on an eight-game winless run in the English second tier ahead of the visit of Preston and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the out-of-sorts hosts. The Lilywhites, on the other hand, recorded three wins in previous four league fixtures and, as a result, they managed to keep their hopes of booking their place in the play-offs alive. As expected, Barnsley suffered a 2-1 loss to Fulham at Craven Cottage in their last league fixture. The Lilywhites have been producing fine performances in the Championship of late and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered.

Winning away from home in the Championship is never easy, especially at this time of year, but that has been factored into Betfreds 8/5, and its NAP of our betting tips. A draw is always going to be the danger here, and the share wouldnt be the worst recent for both teams, but were going to have Preston to nick a valuable three points. They are the confident side of the two, in better form, and with more to play for.
