Barnsley vs Swansea Predictions

Barnsley and Swansea limped into the play-off places following poor form in the latter stages of the Championship season. 

I am backing a draw between the sides. 

  • Barnsley are winless in 4 of their last 6 home matches (Championship)
  • Barnsley have drawn 3 of their last 5 home matches against Swansea (all competitions)
  • Swansea are winless in 8 of their last 11 matches (Championship)


Swansea have a 37-24 advantage against Barnsley in 76 meetings with 15 draws.

Barnsley Form 

Barnsley failed to win in their last two matches, losing 2-0 away to Preston before a 2-2 draw with Norwich in the final match of the season. 

The Tykes led twice in the first half after goals from Cauley Woodrow and Conor Chaplin but conceded the equaliser in the second half. Barnsley struggled to create many clear-cut chances with 33% possession,15 shots and 1.29 expected goals. 

Barnsley were set for a strong finish to the season with four wins in five but their good form tailed off in the last two matches. 

Valerien Ismael’s side have been hard to beat at Oakwell in the second half of the season, losing just one of their last 10 Championship matches at home. 

Barnsley Injuries & Team News

Defender Ben Williams is ruled out through injury. 

Swansea Form

Swansea ended the season in poor form, winning one of their last five matches. The Swans lost their final match 2-0 away at Watford. 

Steve Cooper’s side saw 52% possession, had 15 shots and struggled to break down an organised Watford side, who scored two second-half goals on the counter-attack. 

Swansea were winless in eight of their last 11 Championship matches, falling from automatic promotion contenders to the play-off places.

Their only points late in the season came from 2-2 draws against relegated Wycombe and mid-table Reading and a narrow 2-1 win against Derby.

Swansea Injuries & Team News

Winger Jordan Morris and full back Tivonge Rushesha are unavailable due to injury.

Barnsley and Swansea will be lacking confidence after a few poor results late in the season. 

The sides have also drawn regularly in recent meetings at Oakwell. A draw is my pick in the first leg of the playoffs.
