Barnsley vs Nottingham (Pick, Prediction, Preview)

Friday at 19:45, on “Oakwell” from Barnsley, the local team receives the visit of Nottingham, in the prologue round number 18 Championship.

Barnsley is newly promoted, but is doing pretty well, ranking 15th with 22 points, with three on goal difference. However, as the team is quite good, being defeated Barnsley last month, managed one win and three draws. After making Wigan 0-0 in the last round, all in a game played at home, Paul Heckingbottom’s team reached 12 points collected at home and six consecutive matches without a win after three draws and three defeats.

Info lot: Sessa D’Almeida and Aidan White are injured and will not perform.

Nottingham has proven over the last seasons it is not able to put real problems to be top class, becoming a modest team of the Championship as proof now lies in 18th place with 19 points and -3 to goalveraj . Defense is the strength of “Lumberjacks” who collected 30 goals so far, with the second worst defense in the second echelon English. All this did not prevent her from Nottingham to impose last round 2-0 with Ipswich, reaching five victories this season. Only one was achieved on foreign land, even the last week, Nottingham managed to collect 5 points in 9 matches played away.

Info lot: Fryatt, Cash, Pinillos, Traore and Cohen are injured, Hildeberto Pereira is suspended and Eric Lichaj and Britt Assamobalonga uncertain.

Probable teams:

Barnsley (4-4-2): Davies – Bree – Roberts – Jackson – Yiadom – Watkins – Scowen – Hourihane – Kent – Winnall – Armstrong

Nottingham (3-5-1-1): Stojkovic – Mills – Perqis – Worrall – Mancienne – Kasami – Lansbury – Lam – Fox – Osborn – Vellios

Both teams is almost equal potential, as evidenced along the 17 stages elapsed. Considering that teams easily get naked, and marks as often, which could brings about several changes in score, it would not be ruled a draw with goals.

Prediction: Over 2,5 goals
Odds: 2,00
