Competition: League One

Market: Draw

Odds: 12/5 @ Bet 365

With the chance to extend their buffer in the automatic positions, Barnsley will travel to The Keepmoat Stadium on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a 1-1 draw away at Blackpool in midweek, Doncaster appear to have stalled in the back end of the season. Now failing to win any of their last five outings, Grant McCann’s side now hold just a one-point buffer from slipping out of the playoff positions. If the Dons are to shore up their spot in the top-six then fans around The Keepmoat Stadium will know they must improve on their ability to transform one-point into three. Along with playing out a 1-1 draw when they faced off against Barnsley back in December, McCann’s side have drawn three of their last five league appearances.

As for the visitors, playing out a 0-0 draw with playoff contenders Sunderland in midweek and now holding a four-point buffer in the automatic positions, the mood in Barnsley’s camp should be on a high. Yet to taste defeat in League One since the start of December, the longest run in the division this season, Daniel Stendel has however seen his side now draw three of their last five league appearances. With six of the last 10 combined matches between the two sides seeing the match end in a draw, we’re backing a similar outcome on Friday night.
