Huddersfield to win
Sorry Barnsley fans but your time is up. The Tykes form hasn't been good of late with just one win from their last nine games and, more notably, no victory in their last five where they've lost three games. The fact they are playing an in form Huddersfield doesn't help either. The Terriers have had a reasonably tough run of fixtures and are unbeaten in four with 10 points collected form the 12 on offer. The two sides have met fairly recently too having faced off in the cup in February; Huddersfield won that game too.
Banking on under 2.5 goals
Our next tip for this game is that we will see fewer than 2.5 total goals. Huddersfield have gone under 2.5 goals in three of their last five matches whilst Barnsley have only gone over 2.5 in one of their past five matches. The average goals per game across the season as a whole support our low scoring tip as well; Huddersfield have averaged 2.4 per game with Barnsley averaging even lower at 2.2. If you need further convincing, each of the last three games between these sides have come up south of the all important 2.5 marker.

Barnsley Predicted Lineup
Barnsley were in the playoffs last season. Now they face the very real prospect of relegation and, in fact, it feels like a near impossibility that they don't drop regardless of how they get on here. Can they at least go down swinging?
