Market: Swansea win
Odds: 11/8 @ 888sport
Desperate to find a boost on their travels in midweek, Swansea will make the trip to Barnsley on Wednesday night looking to make up some ground.
Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend putting in another worrying display when return from the international break, Barnsley find themselves in the midst of a real struggle. In their 18 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a pair of wins, five draws and 11 defeats, scoring 13 and conceding 29 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of just 11, the Reds open the midweek fixtures sat down in 23rd and already four points adrift of safety. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 4-1 defeat away at Fulham, Barnsley have remarkably lost nine of their previous 10 Championship matchups. Likewise, it should also be noted, Wednesday’s hosts have managed to muster just a single victory from any of their previous 16 straight contests across all formats.
As for the visitors, having to settle for a single point over the weekend, Swansea will be desperate to try and find some stability on their travels here. In their opening 18 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, six draws and six defeats, scoring 21 and conceding 23 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 24, the Whites open the midweek fixtures sat 12th in the table and five points adrift of finding a route into the play-off spots. As for their recent run of results, last seen over the weekend playing out a 1-1 draw against Blackpool on home soil, Swansea have lost just a pair of their last eight contests. Likewise, it should be noted, landing back-to-back wins in their last trips to Barnsley, we’re backing a similar away win on Wednesday night.
