          Barnsley vs Exeter City Preview, Tips & Stats

          Barnsley welcome Exeter City to Oakwell for a big weekend in League One. The hosts are looking to work further into the Play-offs whereas Exeter are looking to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone.

          Barnsley currently sit fifth in League One after 27 games. The Tykes have 15 wins, seven draws and five losses, leaving them on 52 points, three points within the Play-offs and three points from automatic promotion.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Barnsley have three wins and two draws.

          Herbie Kane opened the scoring for Barnsley in the tenth minute and Devante Cole doubled their lead over Peterborough just after the 30 minute mark. However, a brace from Jonson Clarke-Harris drew Peterborough level just after halftime. Neither team could find another goal and had to settle for a 2 - 2 draw. Barnsley went ahead first again against Wigan, Cole scoring in the added time of the first half. However, an 87th minute goal from Jonny Smith grabbed a 1 - 1 draw for Wigan.

          Cole was on the scoresheet again for Barnsley but Chris Martin equalised for Bristol Rovers in the second half. However, Corey O’Keeffee scored just five minutes later to give Barnsley the 2 - 1 win. It was another 2 - 1 win for Barnsley against Carlisle the next time out. Luke Armstrong gave Carlisle the lead in the seventh minute but a goal from Cole and a penalty from Kane gave Barnsley the 2 - 1 win.

          The last time out for Barnsley came against Oxford United in a big game for Play-off football. An own goal from Sam Long was the only goal of the game as Barnsley took home a big 1 - 0 win.

          Exeter City, on the other hand, currently sit 19th in League One. In 28 games, Exeter have seven wins, six draws and 14 losses which leaves them on 30 points, seven points above the relegation zone.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Exeter have two wins, one draw and two losses.

          Harvey Knibbs opened the scoring for Reading in the ninth minute but Zak Jules equalised, though an Alex Hartridge own goal regained the lead for Reading before halftime. Dion Rankine drew Exeter level again, but a goal in the 77th minute from Femi Azeez gave Reading the 3 - 2 win. Exeter bounced back against Carlisle United. Reece Cole and Sonny Cox gave Exeter the 2 - 0 lead, a good enough lead that Daniel James Butterworth’s goal wasn’t enough as Exeter held on for a 2 - 1 win.

          A goal from Albie Morgan in each half gave Blackpool the 2 - 0 win over an Exeter side that could only manage four shots on target. The Grecians once again only had four shots on target in their 0 - 0 draw against Cambridge United, who couldn’t even manage a shot on target.

          The most recent outing for Exeter was against Bristol Rovers. Cox scored the only goal of the game in the 12th minute to give Exeter a win big over Rovers, who they restricted to 15 shots with zero on target.

          Barnsley and Exeter have met 23 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1964. Exeter have the better record in the fixture with 11 wins in comparison to Barnsley’s eight wins, with the other four games ending in a draw.
