2nd Jan 2021 | Championship
The Tykes were 21st after 7 matches but 10 wins since then have catapulted them up to the verge of the top 6. Norwich are showing signs of nerves at the top and could go three matches without a victory quite easily.
In the Championship there is a very plucky outsider waiting for us at Carrow Road. Barnsley are charging up the table and are extremely lively at 4/1 with Bet365.
The Tykes had a poor start to the season, failing to win any of their first seven matches. That looked like a hangover from their heroics to stay in the division in July. But once they hit their stride, they have been as good as anyone really.
Since October 27th, Barnsley have actually won 10 times, that’s one more than leaders Norwich have managed. The Canaries ought to be worried arriving, as they do, off the back of a defeat to Watford and a home draw with QPR.
It could be the day that the Tykes announce themselves as real playoff contenders.
