Nottm Forest – Barnsley Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 10:00

Forest are heading into this one against a Barnsley side who have lost to nil on three occasions this term, two of which came on the road. As a result, we are backing a straightforward home win for Lamouchis side, with a 2-0 victory for Forest our pick in the correct score betting on Saturdays meeting at the City Ground.

They beat Swansea 1-0 last weekend, so its going to hard for us to travel to Nottingham, but we are confident in our own ourselves. They are statement team. They are a proper Championship club that have had some great results recently.

He said: We started well at Wigan; we had a good game considering the number of players we had out. Then, during the international break we worked hard as a team. We can definitely say from those last two matches that we have our Barnsley team back. The performance and intensity from the Leeds game is the standard we need to have every week.

He is surely worth backing to bag another one here and if Forest can keep him fit this season, he could be the difference between them trying to avoid being sucked into a relegation battle and potentially mounting a play-off push. His 6 league goals this season have come at an outstanding strike-rate of 1 every 56 minutes. When fit, the 23 year old is arguably the most deadly striker in the division.

Today's Tips

Barnsley was able to defeat the host at their turf only two times in the entire twenty years span with almost a dozen clashes in it. Meanwhile, the Tykes had their previous win against Forest in this ground in 2017 Championship games and their last meeting was dominated by the home team. Moreover, in overall numbers, the host does hold more wins to their name.

Were backing Forest to carry their recent positivity into this game and were tipping them to take all three points this weekend. They meet a Barnsley side who have lost two of their three away trips so far, failing to score in any. Forest are on the up, while their 3-0 home win over Birmingham laid out the template for clashes like this.

Nottingham Forest are determined to bring glory days back to the City Ground. Nottingham Forest do not want to stop now and given Barnsleys poor form at the start of the season, we are tempted to put our money on Sabri Lamouchis troops. The Reds did well to beat second-placed Swansea City in Wales at the weekend, with the team climbing to tenth position in the standings.

In their last meeting at the City Ground the Reds recorded a 3-0 win over the Tykes, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. The Tykes, on the other hand, sit in the relegation zone ahead of the trip to Nottinghamshire and seeing that they suffered three losses in previous four league fixtures, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Lewis Grabban, who has netted four goals so far this term, is likely to lead the line for the hosts.

Barnsley are an English club nicknamed the Tykes. The club was founded in 1887 and it has to be noted that they spend more seasons in the Championship than any other club in the history. Barnsley play their home games at Oakwell, the stadium that was built in 1887. The Tykes played in the Sheffield and District League from 1890, but in 1895 they were part of the Midland League.
