          Barnsley vs Cheltenham Town Preview, Tips & Stats

          Oakwell hosts Barnsley and Cheltenham town this Saturday in League One. Barnsley look to close in on automatic promotion whereas Cheltenham need a big three points to aid their League One survival push.

          Barnsley currently sit fifth in League One after 37 games. The Tykes have 20 wins, ten draws and seven losses, leaving them on 70 points, only five points from automatic promotion.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Barnsley have three wins, one draw and one loss.

          Sonny Bradley opened the scoring for Derby in the 18th minute but a goal from Adam Phillips equalised for Barnsley before halftime. Phillips completed his brace in the second half to give Barnsley the 2 - 1 win. Barnsley went behind again against Wycombe, with Dale Taylor scoring in the 16th minute, but Sam Cosgrove equalised in the added time of the first half. Kieran Sadlier regained the lead for Wycombe but Donovan Pines and Corey O’Keeffe both scored to give Barnsley the lead. Following the red card from David Wheeler, Conor Michael Grant scored to secure the 4 - 2 win for Barnsley.

          A goal from John McAtee gave Barnley the lead at halftime and Pines doubled this lead just minutes into the second half. However, a goal from Victor Adeboyejo got Bolton into the game and a 98th minute goal from Randell Williams grabbed the 2 - 2 draw for Bolton. The visit from Lincoln was one to forget. Phillips did score for Barnsley but a brace from Jack Moylan and goals from Joe Taylor, Daniel Mandriou and Jovon Makama gave Lincoln the 5 - 1 win.

          The last time out for Barnsley was against Carlisle. Luke Armstrong opened the scoring for Carlisle in the tenth minute but Jordan Williams equalised for Barnsley before halftime. Goals from McAtee and Jon Russell gave Barnsley the lead and despite a late goal from Daniel James Butterworth, Barnsley held on for the 3 - 2 win.

          Cheltenham, on the other hand, currently sit 21st in League One. In 36 games, The Robins have nine wins, seven draws and 20 losses which leaves them on 34 points, just one point above the relegation zone.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Cheltenham have two draws and three losses.

          Matt Taylor gave Cheltenham the lead in the ninth minute, but an own goal from Elliot Bonds early in the second half drew Wigan level. Both sides only had two shots on target and had to settle for the 2 - 2 draw. Cheltenham failed to register a single shot on target against Wycombe as both Joe Low and Beryly Lubala scored in the last five minutes of the game to give Wycombe the 2 - 0 win.

          The visit from Burton Albion saw Cheltenham fail to register a shot on target again as both teams failed to find the back of the net as the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw. Charlton took a 1 - 0 lead into halftime with a goal from Daniel Kanu but Liam Sercombe equalised with 20 minutes to go. However, late goals from Tyreeq Bakinson and Alfie May gave Charlton the 3 - 1 win.

          The most recent outing for Cheltenham was against Oxford United. Josh Murphy gave Oxford the lead in the added time of the first half, but Will Ferry drew Cheltenham level in the 80th minute. But just eight minutes later, Greg Leigh scored to secure the 2 - 1 win for Oxford United.

          Barnsley and Cheltenham have only met five times in their histories, the first meeting coming back in 2002. Barnsley have a far better record, with four wins in comparison to Cheltenham who are yet to beat The Tykes, with the first meeting between the two ending in a draw.
