Match: Barnsley vs Rotherham

Competition: Championship

Date: April 24, 2021

Kick-off time: 3:00 pm, April 24, 2021 (UK time)

Stadium: Oakwell Ground

Betting prediction: Barnsley 2-0 Rotherham

Saturday’s game could have major implications at both ends of the table, with Barnsley looking to secure a spot in the play-offs, and Rotherham deep in a relegation battle.

Barnsley have won three of their last four. With three matches remaining, the Tykes are on course to reach the play-offs.

Relegation-threatened Rotherham have lost their last three on the spin and are fighting for their Championship status. The Millers are four points from safety heading into the weekend, although crucially, they have two games in hand over the sides around them, so survival is still in their hands.

Barnsley vs Rotherham: Recommended bets

Under 2.5 goals scored. Five of Rotherham’s last six away games have produced fewer than three goals. Furthermore, each of Barnsley’s last three matches have also featured under 2.5 goals.

Daryl Dike to score. The 20-year-old American has been a revelation since joining the club on loan in January, netting nine goals n 16 appearances.

Barnsley vs Rotherham: Match preview

Play-off hopefuls Barnsley welcome relegation-threatened Rotherham to Oakwell on Saturday.

Barnsley picked up a crucial 1-0 win at Huddersfield in midweek. Daryl Dike’s came off the bench to score the winner in some style. The Tykes have won three of their last four league games

Barnsley currently occupy sixth position and are now six points clear of seventh-placed Reading.  A win on Saturday would not yet mathematically confirm their spot in the play-offs, but they’d have won foot in it.

Valerien Ismael’s side have won eight of their last nine matches on the road, but their form at home has been a tad more inconsistent.

Barnsley have the 7th-best home record in the league, winning 11 and drawing five of their 21 matches at Oakwell. Barnsley’s last home match ended in a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough earlier in the month.

Huddersfield suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Middlesbrough on Tuesday, despite taking an early lead through Angus McDonald. Rotherham were soon down to 10 men after Matty Crooks’ sending off, allowing Boro back into the game.

While most clubs have three matches remaining, Rotherham have five games still to play – more than enough for them to close the gap on Derby who are four ahead of them. That said, it will still be a challenge for them to avoid relegation.

Rotherham’s away record ranks 19th in the Championship, with six wins and three draws from 19 matches on the road. Rotherham’s last away match was five games ago, but ended in a 0-0 draw at Huddersfield.

Barnsley won the reverse fixture 2-1 at the AESSEAL New York Stadium in December. Cauley Woodrow and Alex Mowatt netted early on for Barnsley while Michael Smith scored in the second half for the home side.

Barnsley are unbeaten in their last 10 matches against Rotherham. You have to go back to 1982 for Rotherham’s last win over the Tykes.

Barnsley team news vs Rotherham

Daryl Dike should be recalled to the starting eleven after scoring an acrobatic bicycle kick off the bench in midweek. Herbie Kane is fit again and could also return to the side.

Liam Kitching and Ben Williams are out for Barnsley.

Barnsley striker Carlton Morris had two separate loan spells at Rotherham, making 36 appearances for the club in total.

Rotherham team news vs Barnsley

Matt Crooks is suspended so Jamie Lindsay should return to midfield.

Rotherham have no other confirmed absentees, but Matthew Olosunde will be pushing for a start at right-back, with Wes Harding making way.

Rotherham defender Angus MacDonald made over 50 appearances for Barnsley between 2016 and 2018. Forward Michael Smith also played for Barnsley during a brief loan spell in 2015.
