Barnsley vs Middlesbrough Prediction

Barnsley will be looking to tighten their grip on a playoff spot in Saturday's home clash with Middlesbrough, whose own top-six hopes are fast fading. The Tykes returned to winning ways last time out to climb into fifth, while Boro are nine points off the playoffs following a three-game winless streak.

An 83rd-minute goal from Luton striker James Collins put Barnsley's lead in a precarious position on Monday afternoon, but Daryl Dike's brace would help the Tykes secure a vital three points. The home side remain in fifth place and could move as high as third with a win here.

That victory helped Barnsley consolidate their fifth position, having garnered 68 points from 40 games. Middlesbrough have little left to play for this season, as they currently sit in 10th spot on 57 points.

Middlesbrough looked poised for another defeat on Monday, but Yannick Bolasie's late goal helped the Teessiders rescue a point against promotion contenders Watford. Neil Warnock's men have failed to win any of their last three league games and face another tough test here.

Both sides have clashed on 63 occasions in the past and Middlesbrough have an overwhelmingly better record. Boro have 33 wins to their name, while Barnsley were victorious on 18 occasions. The two sides had to share the spoils in 12 previous games.

Their most recent meeting came on 3 October 2020. Goals in each half by Jonathan Howson and Chuba Akpom helped Middlesbrough pick up a 2-1 victory on home soil. Barnsley's victory over Luton Town saw them get back to winning ways after a two-game winless run. Middlesbrough will be looking to pick up their first victory in four league games.

1-1, 2-2 OR 3-3 DRAW @ 7/2

Barnsley Team News

Dyke has scored four goals in his last four appearances for Barnsley, netting braces at both Wycombe Wanderers and Luton, and is certain to lead the line here. Valerien Ismael has the option of rotating his attack slightly, though, with Carlton Morris in contention to replace Victor Adeboyejo, who is without a goal since mid-December. Liam Kitching, Herbie Kane and Ben Williams are the home side's confirmed absentees for this contest.

DARYL DIKE TO SCORE @ 15/8

Middlesbrough Team News

Sam Morsy has joined Dael Fry, Marcus Browne, Marcus Tavernier and Anfernee Dijksteel on the sidelines after damaging ligaments against Watford. Bolasie replaced Morsy in that match and took his opportunity with a late leveller, meaning that he is likely to get the nod out on the left here. Warnock has never been entirely happy with his striker options this term, but Duncan Watmore may again get the nod over Ashley Fletcher up top on Saturday.
