Barnsley vs Derby Predictions

Given the fantastic form Barnsley are currently on, they should be backed to pick up another three points against Derby on Wednesday. 

Valerien Ismael’s side are in the form of their lives and Wayne Rooney’s Derby team head to Oakwell on the back of three straight away defeats.

  • Barnsley have won their last 7 matches (Championship).
  • Barnsley have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 5 matches (Championship).
  • Barnsley's Daryl Dike has scored 3 goals in his last 4 matches (Championship).
  • Derby have lost their last 3 away matches (Championship).
  • Derby have kept 1 clean sheet in their last 8 matches (Championship).
  • Derby have been behind at half time and full time in their last 3 away matches (Championship).

Head to Head

Derby hold a 34-21 head-to-head advantage over Barnsley, with the two sides drawing 16 of their 71 competitive meetings. 

However, Barnsley beat Derby 2-0 earlier in the season with Conor Chaplin and Victor Adeboyejo scoring.

Barnsley Form

Valerien Ismael’s team are top of the Championship form table and their brilliant winning run has seen them break into the playoff positions.

The Tykes are scoring for fun and have beaten some of the league’s best teams during a run of seven straight victories.

Their run began when they won 2-0 away at Brentford on Valentine's Day. They have since beaten Blackburn, Bristol City, Stoke, Millwall and QPR.

A seventh successive win came on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Birmingham thanks to Daryl Dike's goal.

Barnsley Injuries & Team News

Barnsley will be without defensive duo Ben Williams and Liam Kitching, but Toby Sibbick is likely to start in the back three. 

On loan American striker Daryl Dike has scored three in his past four matches so he is likely to lead the line.

Derby Form

Despite an excellent start to Wayne Rooney’s tenure in charge, Derby are without a win in their last three matches.

An embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Cardiff was followed by a 1-0 defeat to relegation rivals Coventry at the weekend.

The back-to-back losses have given Rooney’s side a reality check that they are still very much in a relegation fight, just six points above safety.

Derby Injuries & Team News

First choice goalkeeper David Marshall remains injured so Kelle Roos will continue to deputise.

Forward Tom Lawrence is also ruled out, alongside central defensive duo Curtis Davies and Krystian Bielik.

Given their poor defensive form, Rooney is likely play one upfront rather than the 4-4-2 that was used during a 1-0 defeat against Coventry.
