            Barnsley vs Oxford United Prediction, Tips & Stats

            We're at Oakwell this weekend as last season's losing play-off finalists Barnsley face Oxford United in League One.

            Barnsley currently sit 10th in League One with one win, one draw and one loss from their first three games of the season.

            The Tykes made an outstanding start to their league campaign on the opening day with a thumping 7-0 win over Port Vale in a performance that gave the impression they were coming into this season in better shape than they finished the last.

            However, Barnsley have quickly sobered up in following games with a 1-1 draw at Bristol Rovers preceding a 1-3 loss at home to Peterborough United in midweek.

            The loss to Peterborough was a damning one given it came against a fellow promotion contender and the gap between the two sides was fairly evident, showing Barnsley have a tonne of improving to do if they are to become one of the top promotion contenders in the league for this season.

            They're still a side with plenty of quality but having made a fairly left-field managerial appointment in the summer there will be question marks that begin to arise should their form not improve.

            This is a tough game on paper for Barnsley but one they need to win following a big loss to Oxford.

            Oxford United currently sit 6th in League One with two wins and one loss from their first three games of the campaign.

            Oxford kicked off off their season with a 2-0 defeat to rivals Cambridge United before amends with successive wins: a 1-0 win over Carlisle United and, most recently, a 2-1 win away at Derby County.

            The win over derby in midweek was a fine performance by Oxford away from home and it was sealed by a brace from Mark Harris, with the two goals coming in the 32nd and 72nd minute before Martyn Waghorn reduced the deficit in the 87th minute.

            Many people backed Oxford for promotion coming into this season and while they started the campaign in disappointing fashion they now find themselves right on track to embark upon a long run of wins.

            Oxford were beaten twice by Barnsley last season but they'll no doubt come into this game expecting to fare significantly better.

            On paper Barnsley is one of the tougher away days in the division but given their last two results Oxford should feel like there is no reason as to why they can't take all three points from this encounter.

            For our Barnsley vs. Oxford prediction, we're going for a 2-2 draw.
