High-flying Barnsley will look to continue their fairytale chase for promotion when they welcome relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday to Oakwell on Saturday.
A win over Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday means Barnsley have now taken 28 points from a possible 30, conceding just six goals in that time too. Only clear league leaders Norwich City can get anywhere near them in the current form standings; form which has taken them from the bottom half to fifth. The Tykes have a five points cushion in the playoff places and are only eight points off the automatic promotion spots, and on current form, you would not put it past them putting up a seriously strong effort of closing those sides down above them.
A draw on the same night saw Sheffield Wednesday end their seven game losing streak, but it was not enough to push them anywhere near towards safety. They sit nine points behind Birmingham City in 21st and need a huge upturn in form if they are to drag themselves to survival from here. That six point deduction could be incredibly costly come May.
In their last 15 defeats away from home, Sheffield Wednesday have scored just four goals, and considering Barnsley have tightened up defensively of late in correlation with their run of form, we believe a Barnsley win to nil is the best tip here, priced at 13/8 with Sky Bet.
