Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 2/5 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves seeking a Championship boost in midweek, Barnsley will host Stoke on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, managing to pick up what was a stunning FA Cup victory over the weekend, there is no doubt that Barnsley will be desperate to build off of that result. In their 24 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a pair of wins, eight draws and 14 defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 36 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 14, the Reds open the midweek fixtures sat down in 23rd and eight points adrift of finding a route out of the drop zone. As for their recent run of results, while Barnsley might have claimed a thrilling 5-4 victory against League Two outfit Barrow on home soil, the midweek hosts have failed to win any of their last eight Championship matchups. It should be noted, the Reds have seen 11 of their previous 13 fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, also managing to make a much-welcomed return to winning ways over the weekend, Stoke still have their sights set on landing a play-off spot this year. In their 24 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded 10 wins, five draws and nine defeats, scoring 28 and conceding 25 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 35, the Potters find themselves sat eighth in the table and five points adrift of breaking back into the play-off places. As for their recent run of results, despite landing a 2-0 win against Leyton Orient on FA Cup duties, Stoke have managed to win just one of their previous six Championship matchups. Likewise, it should be noted, with Wednesday’s guests seeing four of their last five fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
