Doncaster Rovers v Barnsley Match Preview & Free Bets

Doncaster Rovers face local rivals Barnsley this week and we'll be siding with the Tykes to keep their unbeaten run going

Barnsley lost a bit of ground on table-topping Luton Town earlier this week when they could only manage a goal-less draw with fellow promotion-hopefuls Sunderland on Tuesday evening, however they remain four points clear of the Black Cats as things stand and will be confident of keeping their unbeaten run going when they make the short journey to the Keepmoat Stadium on Friday evening. Daniel Stendel’s side have now avoided defeat in each of their last seventeen League One outings and given that they are in action on Friday evening, they can put some pressure on leaders Luton Town.

The Tykes have managed eleven wins in their unbeaten league run and this certainly holds them in good stead heading into the final phase of the campaign. They have won two of their last three away games with an aggregate scoreline of 7-0 and we envisage them edging their way to another three points when they lock horns with local rivals Doncaster this weekend.

Doncaster Rovers remain very much in the hunt for a play-off place at the end of the season with the South Yorkshire side currently sitting in sixth position in the league table, however their recent form has been far from impressive with three draws and two defeats coming in their last five games. Rovers have generally been solid in front of their home fans but they will be up against a Barnsley outfit which are flying high right now and as such we’ll be siding with Stendel’s men to edge their way to victory on Friday evening, Ladbrokes Bookmakers going 7/5 on Barnsley to win.
