Barnsley vs Derby Preview and Prediction 2021

Barnsley vs Derby County predictions for Wednesday night’s Championship action at Oakwell. The Tykes have won seven on the spin and should take maximum points from this crucial game in hand. Read on for our free Championship predictions and betting tips.

Barnsley have won their last seven Championship games and are unbeaten in nine.

The Tykes have won seven of their last nine league starts at Oakwell (D1, L1).

Derby have lost their last two league matches and four of their last five on the road.

Barnsley ran out 0-2 winners in November’s reverse fixture at Pride Park.

Eighth consecutive win on the cards for Barnsley

Derby’s initial progress under new manager Wayne Rooney has hit an abrupt end over the last seven days and the Rams look vulnerable this Wednesday when they make the trip up north to face high-flying Barnsley.

Derby enjoyed a fine run of five wins from six throughout January and early February to steer themselves clear of danger, however the Rams could be sucked back into the relegation argument after consecutive defeats in the last week.

County were hammered 4-0 at Cardiff before going down 1-0 against Coventry at the weekend, and with four losses from their last five away trips, there’s little hope for them this Wednesday against a Barnsley side that have won seven league matches on the spin.

The Tykes weren’t at their best on Saturday but still found a way past strugglers Birmingham 1-0 and the result deservedly lifted Valerian Ismael’s charges into the top six.

The South Yorkshire outfit won’t want to relinquish their position now after stringing together an amazing sequence of victories and this midweek game in hand offers them the chance to further strengthen their play-off claims.

As well as their lengthy winning run overall, Barnsley have also won seven of their last nine at Oakwell (D1, L1) and they beat Derby 0-2 in November’s reverse fixture.

We can only envisage a repeat here and the Tykes are confidently supported to bag the points via another 2-0 score-line.
