Barnsley EFL Form: L-L-L-D-L

With only 14 points from 26 games, the Tykes are in last place in the Championship. To avoid the decline, they’ll need to start picking up points as soon as possible.

With 49 points from 27 games, the visitors are in third place in the league rankings. As they pursue a return to the first flight, they will be eager to get back on track this weekend.

 Our Prediction

 

While Barnsley’s league form has deteriorated recently, with the club having gone winless in their last ten games. This season, they have only scored 17 league goals, the fewest in the division.

While Bournemouth is also in poor form, having suffered back-to-back defeats. The Cherries, on the other hand, should have enough to win this weekend.
